    Amazing Experience

    Working with the High Desert Museum was an absolute pleasure. It's an incredible venue with lots of different options locations for the ceremony, reception, after party, and photos. Their team cares about you and your wedding day, and you can tell that they strive to cater to whatever you'd need. Their setup for our dinner, cake cutting, and toasts was beautiful. Their food was absolutely delicious and was made in house, we had 2 guest with strict vegan and gluten free diets, and the meal that was provided to them was, "The best meal they've ever had". Overall, the experience was amazing, we can't wait to come back with our future little ones and relish in the memories we made here.

    WOW is what I have to say about the High Desert Museum, and about their staff-especially Molly! They have a can-do, make it happen attitude that put me at complete peace for my wedding day. They coordinated the most beautiful ceremony and reception ever. The whole wedding was GORGEOUS. Such a beautiful place!!! Highly recommended.

    A unique and spectacular setting for a wedding and/or reception, either indoors or out. A beautiful "modern rustic" interior, with access to exhibits (historical, cultural, geographic, wildlife) detailing Oregon history and the High Desert environment. Staff is easy to work with and has a readily-available set of vendors to refer you to. They are all very accommodating.
