Choosing the Museum of Biblical Art was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Long story short: I love this place, and they're great to work with.Sent on 02/08/2018
The price is fantastic for being in such a great, central location. Most of our guests were traveling in, so having an "uber-able" location was my first priority. The vibe is sophisticated without feeling snobby. The exhibits being open all night made for a great alternative for people who weren't into the dance floor :)
Hailey and her team were on. top. of. it! Without being pushy at all, they made sure that we were prepared and peaceful for our wedding day. Professionalism meets a personal touch with this staff. Highly organized, highly responsive. I didn't feel like "just another event" they were having -- but a very prioritized, meaningful part of their job.
It was really important to me that we be able to bring in our own alcohol - they made that super easy. They have plenty of catering options to choose from with vendors for every budget. The space is beautiful on its own without having to bring in much decor.
The only thing I would have wanted to change was having more time to set up at the venue. Because it is a functioning museum, they have to be particular about when you can load things in and would charge you for extra hours to set up. It wasn't really a big deal, just a little peeve that took more coordinating on our end. From bride to bride just wanted to give you a heads up!
I can't recommend the MBA enough. They made our wedding day a true joy.

The venue and event staff at the Biblical Arts Museum were both incredible and it made for a wedding that we will never forget. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants a smaller to medium size wedding at a very reasonable cost, while still being a very first class experience.Sent on 09/05/2018

Hailey was so easy to work with and responsive regarding answering our questions and detailed planning prior to the event. We held our rehearsal dinner in the atrium and it was beautiful and intimate. The acoustics were excellent for our piano player. Plus, we were able to make speeches without use of any microphone and be heard by all. We had the museum for five hours, from 4-5 set up, then from 5-8 our private event with three galleries for viewing, then from 8-9 tear down. Excellent venue and highly recommend working with Hailey.Sent on 08/23/2017
