The Larz Anderson Auto Museum is the perfect setting for a corporate dinner, cocktail party, or wedding
reception. The entire 1888 Anderson Carriage House may be rented any available date. You will have access to all public galleries, which are open at the time of your event. For groups up to 130, dinner and dancing take place in the majestic Main Gallery amid the Museum's priceless automobile collections and historic artifacts. There is no separate "function room," so you and your guests may fully experience all the Museum has to offer. A staff member is on duty throughout the evening to assist you.
There is plenty of free parking, and the Great Lawn is available for larger groups requiring a tent.

Amazing venue made a wonderful day even better
The venue is so beautiful minimal decor was needed. We definitely felt like a prince and princess.
The Larz is definitely a must for any celebration
All the good feels
We had a party of 90. The ceremony was just outside the museum at the Temple of Love (which we reserved through the town of Brookline), the cocktail hour was in the back stable room and the reception was in the main gallery. The size of the venue was perfect for our party and we were able to comfortably accommodate all of the tables and chairs as well as have space for dancing. One really great thing about this venue, is that it is so beautiful and well lit on its own. We didn't have to worry about lights or decorations (other than flowers on the tables). This year, the car exhibit was 1920s Golden Age. With that beautiful display and the natural, castle-like feel of the museum, many of our guests later came up to us and said they felt that they were in Downton Abbey (which of course made my heart flutter).
Guests were able to walk around the museum to see the exhibit (on the main floor and downstairs), while sipping on their drinks during cocktail hour. They all really enjoyed that, and wanted to come back with family members to show them the exhibit on their own.
As the venue is a museum, we had to work with outside vendors for catering, tables and chairs. This was an incredibly easy process as we received a list of approved caterers (that ranged from very high end to modestly priced). We went with Cuisine Chez Vous for our catering needs, and I am so happy that they were on that list (because they were also amazing).
There is a space on the second floor for the bridal party to use before the ceremony. We had a private Ketubah ceremony before the ceremony outside, so we used that space to accommodate about 20 people. It worked very well.
Karen, who administers the museum, was a pleasure to work with. She was always responsive and very flexible with our requests. Karen worked with our very busy schedules to find a time to meet with us on several occasions. I will be forever grateful to her for accommodating our wedding party just before our reservation time as of course we had about 2 hours of surprise rain. The rain, as it turned out, went away just in time for our wedding photos and brought us so much good luck!
It has been about a month since our wedding, and my husband and I still feel like getting married at the Larz Anderson Museum was a dream.
Thank you, Karen and team, for your hospitality and for making our day so magical.

Larz Anderson Auto Museum is a unique and fantastic venue for a wedding. We absolutely love working there and creating amazing wedding days around the space which always has creative and beautiful displays for guests to be surrounded by.
I've had four couples get married at the Larz Anderson Museum this past summer and they loved the venue. The back drop of antique cars made for amazing photos!
