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.

My daughter's wedding
Our wedding at the Michener was absolutely gorgeous! The venue is unique and served as a perfect backdrop for a perfect autumn wedding day. From the cocktail hour in the sculpture garden to the drama of the opening of the Pavillion window blinds, it was truly spectacular! Everyone raved about the delicious food and the overall beauty and elegance. It was unlike any wedding I had ever attended. Lindsay form Catering By Design was wonderful to work with and all of her advice from flowers to DJ were spot on! If you are looking for something a little different and classy...the Michener is the place. We could not have been happier!

I want to thank Terri Fair from Catering by Design for her attention to detail and support during the planning of Sarah and Dane's wedding. I was very happy with the organization of the entire process. Food was great, guests were happy. Everything turned out better than expected! Terri handled all of the details seamlessly! The Michener Art Museum was a fabulous venue. The outside courtyard was perfect for the ceremony and cocktail hour. The inside ballroom was beautiful and dramatic when lit up in the evening. At the end of the evening, all of our belongings were packed up and loaded into my car. https://dawenhuangamiomiyaphotograph.shootproof.com/sarah-dane-preview

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.
