    Perfect event!

    Working with Tana at the Discovery Museum was so great. She made our entire event run smoothly. I can't thank her enough for everything!

    There are so many aspects of the Discovery Museum that made our wedding reception perfect! First and foremost, the staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to requests on the day of, and spent a lot of time communicating and meeting with us, our planner and other parties involved. They worked seamlessly with the florist and caterer for setup – they only had two hours to prepare and it all got done! We utilized the bottom floor for the cocktail party, and the middle floor for dinner and dancing. Guests were free to explore the museum and interact with the exhibits. Even I joined in on the obstacle course in my poufy white dress! Another great aspect about the museum is that elaborate decorations are not needed – the place pops all on its own.

    I could say that we were really lucky that everything fell into place for us, but luck only gets you so far. Having good vendors is a plus, but a fantastic venue with excellent staff to coordinate the chaos is better than luck, and the credit goes to the Discovery Museum!
