About Museum of Art & History (MOAH)

Museum of Art & History is a wedding venue in Lancaster, California. There are various ways you could experience this sleek, contemporary space. You could enjoy scenic views and admire the sunset, or you could have an elegant wedding in the main gallery, which hosts rotating art exhibitions. Founded in 1986, this museum exists to raise awareness, improve accessibility and increase the appreciation of art in the Antelope Valley. The atmosphere and style partially depends on the current exhibition, making this a great option for creatives, artists and art aficionados. The venue also offers an unforgettable view — an almost 360-degree vista of downtown Lancaster and mountain ranges. Your guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the stunning rooftop terrace and explore art exhibitions while also experiencing all of the other beauty and magic that comes from your special day.

Facilities and Capacity
There are three main event spaces to choose from at MOAH. The most common option is to rent out both the main gallery and the Lantern Room, which includes a rooftop terrace. The number of guests that can fit in the main gallery depends on the current exhibition. The Lantern Room and Roof accommodates 100 standing guests or 80 seated guests. Renting out both of these spaces is ideal for both your reception and ceremony, and capacity usually ranges from 80 to 200 guests.

    Gorgeous Venue & Great Staff

    I booked the rooftop terrace and Lantern Room for my dad's 90th birthday. The setting was stunning. It would be perfect for a wedding or any other special event. We only had 40 people but the room can accommodate many more depending on how its set up. We rented it from 330-9pm allowing 1 hour for setup and a half hour for cleanup. We wanted to be there at sunset and the sunset performed on cue! The timing worked perfectly. Four hours allowed enough time for appetizers & cocktails, dinner, cake serving, a short speech and a couple hours of wonderful music/dancing. The MOAH staff was professional, helpful, and communicative throughout the 9 months of planning and also during the party. When I asked about hiring a band, Colleen (at MOAH) mentioned she knew a group that might be perfect. I can't begin to express what a lucky mention that was. The band, "Just Us" (https://justus4.com/), made the party. They're extraordinary. They had everyone smiling ear to ear and dancing! Not only are they fabulous musicians, they're also the warmest, most caring people. When the cake didn’t arrive on time, the band members took it upon themselves to call around and to find a cake and offered to go pick it up! Luckily, they didn’t have to do that in the end but it shows how much they genuinely care. I can't recommend MOAH and Just Us highly enough. The Antelope Valley is so lucky to have them. Our party was a smash and will be talked about for many years to come!

    I booked the "Lantern Room" atop the roof of the Lancaster Museum of Art & History. The space is very modern and clean; metal beams cross in front of floor-to-ceiling windows and the space is filled with natural light. The floors have new silver-grey wood and the ceiling is dotted with glass orbs (the lanterns of the "lantern room"). Its very chic and requires only minimal decorations to make it your own.
    The booking fees help the Museum and its programs, which is a good feel-good bonus to booking the space. The staff were warm and welcoming as well.
    And - of course! You get to have your guests experience all the art the museum - which is a total gem in the Antelope Valley.
