The rehearsal dinner for our son and his wife was better than ever anticipated. Everything was set up perfectly. The guests voiced amazement at how wonderful the museum was as a venue for this event. The museum staff was friendly, professional and accommodating. We especially appreciated the help setting up the center pieces since we did not have time to do this ourselves. They looked better than if I had set them up myself. Thank you for all that you did to help us plan the event, the prompt responses to our communications and the flexibility regarding our delivery of the beverages in advance. Many of our rehearsal dinner guests toured a bit of the museum and several family members who were in town for the wedding were able to enjoy the exhibits as well. As parents of the groom, this big event was our responsibility and thanks to the Detroit Historical Museum staff, it was perfect!Sent on 10/10/2017
