About Metal Museum

Situated in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee, the Metal Museum is a scenic wedding venue. Nestled on the Mississippi River, this venue invites you to celebrate in its atmosphere of intimacy. It sits just south of Memphis’ downtown area and so maintains a sense of vibrancy alongside its position surrounded by nature. The grounds are dotted with century-old trees for an elegant backdrop to your wedding. This venue offers numerous outdoor sites for ceremonies and receptions, alongside pre-wedding gatherings like engagement parties and rehearsal dinners. It also welcomes elopements, for more intimate gatherings.

Facilities and Capacity

The Metal Museum offers a unique space in its gazebo, which is constructed of historic casings. It can be used as a ceremony site or a focal point throughout your day. The river bluff terrace can be tented for shelter from the weather, and it can comfortably accommodate up to 300 guests. In the past, couples have carefully planned their ceremonies to take place as the sun sets over the Mississippi River for an unforgettable celebration of your love. For larger celebrations, all of the grounds are available for you to reserve for your wedding day. These can then be tented and can fit up to 800 people. Some of this space can also be used as a dance floor, so you can dance the night away. Parking is available for your guests’ convenience.

Services Offered

Rental rates for the Metal Museum include the attendance of a staff member to ensure your use of the property runs smoothly. Across its numerous acres, the grounds contain a sculpture garden which you are welcome to browse and use for wedding photos. Should you wish, you can arrange for bar service to attend your reception, perfect for if you are hoping for a sophisticated cocktail hour. The team welcomes you to choose your vendors from their list of trusted businesses to complement your vision for the day.

    Fantastic spot! No decor needed, the scenery speaks for itself.

    We planned a daytime ceremony at the Metal Museum (an affordable $600 for 3 hours). As per the venue, we had to wait until 3 months out to book. We reached out almost a year in advance. Very nice people--we toured the place, fell in love, and they placed us on their calendar to hold our spot. The communication along the way was very open and clear. While it was nerve-wracking to wait until 3 months out, it was WELL worth the wait. We got married in the gazebo overlooking the river--no decor needed. We showed up the day of the wedding dressed to the nines with fresh flowers--that was all we needed to make the photos breathtaking. The river in the background made the day incredibly special. The staff made themselves known and available, but trusted us to let us be. It was a small, happily tearful, intimate ceremony--and since that day, people have told me it was "the best wedding they have ever been to." I also received some comments: "how did you find this place?" and "I want to have my vows renewed here!" I honestly couldn't imagine the day going any better. I highly recommend this location.
