My husband and I were fortunate to be able to have a rehearsal brunch at ECHO before our wedding day. We had a private area in the Sugarsnap cafe and enjoyed an intimate experience with our bridal party and close family. The food was delicious, the scenery beautiful, and the exhibits added an interactive and fun part to the morning. ECHO is am amazing asset to the Burlington waterfront and a perfect place to introduce out of town guests to all that is Lake Champlain.Sent on 11/01/2014

ECHO is a spectacular space for a wedding, or any other event. All of the staff is 100% friendly, professional, and excited to help make your special day go smoothly. They are, first and foremost a museum, not a wedding venue, so you do have to keep in mind that their duties to museum guests come first - but it's such an interesting and unique place that it's totally worth it. The food is incredible, the views are just jaw dropping, the exhibits are entertaining for kids and adults, and it really does convert into a party atmosphere really nicely.Sent on 12/10/2015
Event-coordinating staff could be a little more responsive, and they will occasionally forget to tell you things, so it's on you to be thorough. But the "boots on the ground" folks who are at the actual event are simply flawless.
ECHO Lake Aquarium is a great place to host your events. Tina and her staff are great to work with at ECHO as well. Give them a call. You won't be disappointed.
