About International Museum of Surgical Science

Situated minutes away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, The International Museum of Surgical Science offers its historic Lakeshore mansion for your special day. With turn of the century architecture and breathtaking views of Lake Michigan, Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions offer your guests an elegant setting and interesting exhibits that are sure to spark conversation. Guests enter the Museum and are led up a gilded metal staircase to the main floor. Italian marble floors and fireplaces, as well as 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows are just some of the Museum's many unique features. The wood-paneled walls decorated with historic murals and statues are customizable to your preferences for a romantic ceremony and an intimate dance floor. The building truly embodies the Gold Coast splendor of the late 19th century and will provide for an unforgettable occasion.

    We had our reception at the International Museum of Surgical Science on October 13th 2017. The entire process of planning our wedding was made super easy in the months leading up to our wedding. I worked with Justina and Michelle, who were a great help in getting information and setting up a time for me to do a walk through of the museum. Justina gave me the tour of the venue, providing information on past weddings and events that helped me to envision what our reception would be like. Anytime I had questions after our initial consultation, she gave me thorough answers. A little bit before our wedding, Justina no longer worked at the museum and Michelle took over her position. Michelle reached out to me personally to introduce herself. Justina communicated all of my information to Michelle prior to her departure, so I never felt like we were starting over again with our planning. The day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch. We got rave reviews from our guests about the museum – they loved the décor and architecture. Everyone had so much fun looking at all the exhibits. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend the International Museum of Surgical Science for any event!

    While the IMSS isn't necessarily built to host a wedding reception, we knew it was the perfect venue for our masquerade-themed Halloween reception. It did not disappoint! Lindsey was amazing in the planning process, and super accommodating to all of our crazy requests. The museum is beautiful and such a unique place to host an event; our guests were thrilled to be able to wander around all four floors for the evening. I couldn't be happier with our decision to celebrate here and to contribute funds to keeping the museum going!
