About James A. Michener Art Museum

Entertaining as an artform!

The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion is a contemporary, light-filled space where receptions and special events can be held, surrounded by views of the Michener Art Museum galleries.

The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion has been designed to dramatically increase the Museum's ability to offer its visitors custom programming while establishing the Museum as a premier destination for facility rentals.

Designed by the internationally recognized Philadelphia-based architecture firm KieranTimberlake, the Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion serves as a premier event space in Bucks County for weddings, private parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, corporate meetings, as well as exhibition openings, lectures and the Museum's popular Jazz Nights series.

The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion is a 2,500 square foot light-filled, all-glass structure with a solid roof and doors. Extending into the Museum's Patricia D. Pfundt Sculpture Garden, the Pavilion's doors access both the galleries and gardens.

Terri was incredibly professional, responsive and knowledgable as our coordinator at Catering by Design. She helped us select menus, determine a sensible run-of-show and even choose linen colors. Terri was wonderful to work with and we'd highly recommend both CBD and the Michener as a venue. The museum space was gorgeous in late Spring, and was perfect for a ceremony/reception at the same site — easy to navigate, beautiful art and expansive spaces, and located near to Doylestown and lots of hotels and B&Bs.

When we booked our venue in February 2014, we had no idea how beautiful it would be 2.5 years later. The James A. Michener Museum was everything we could have asked for and more. It was picturesque, clean, and a unique place for us to exchange vows. More than a month later, guests are still talking about the galleries, the sculpture garden, the dramatic reveal of the glass atrium, and (of course) the wall. We would highly recommend The James A. Michener Museum.
