Such a cool place to get married!
This space was amazing for the 100 guests we had. All of our guests were surprised that this gem could be a great wedding venue! We went with a fall theme and it really tied in well with the exhibits. I am now looking for another reason to rent out space for an event. We had our event in the main great space but there are several smaller rooms that would work well for a smaller crowd or another event like a birthday party. We also had time during our reception to go outside to take a few pictures with the photographer that came out amazing.

Gorgeous Historical Setting
We held our wedding ceremony and reception outdoors at the Delaware Agricultural Museum's 1890's village in 2018. It was a very special day and a very special place to get married. We were so pleased to find such a beautiful location for our wedding, right in the heart of Dover!! The museum staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs and wishes for the wedding ceremony and reception set-up, no small feat with over 200 people attending. If you are planning to hold your wedding in the Dover area, you are not going to find a more beautiful setting or a better price!
