About Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts provides the quintessential St. Petersburg experience with sophistication and elegance. Invite guests to see centuries of art, breathtaking paintings and sculptures while celebrating your occasion. Stunning event spaces at the Museum include a classic ballroom with fantastic crystal chandeliers, beautiful gardens with lush foliage, and a sleek, contemporary Conservatory overlooking Tampa Bay. The Museum becomes a backdrop for your wedding, and there is no other place like it in the Tampa Bay area. Our on-site caterers and planning staff take the stress out of vendor selection, and are well-known for their delicious creations and thoughtful designs and scheduling. We have been awarded Wedding Wire Couple Choice Award for several consecutive years and love being a part of so many love stories.

Three things to know about weddings here at the Museum:

1) You can take wedding photos in front of the artwork throughout the galleries.

2) We have both indoor and outdoor spaces for your events, and both classic and contemporary, depending on your party's size and vibe.

3) The MFA is a non-profit, so your special day will help support museum exhibitions and programs.

    Beautiful venue

    Nancy and Lisa were amazing from the MFA! From our first consultation, Nancy was very responsive and helped make the entire planning process smooth and easy. On the day of, they helped set up all of the tables, which ended up looking beautiful. Then they helped organize the procession line and everything went off without a hitch! I didn't have to worry or stress about anything. Not to mention how beautiful the venue is! We had our ceremony in the garden and our reception in the conservatory. Our family and friends both commented on how beautiful everything was! I highly recommend the MFA.

    Museum of Fine Arts and Olympia Catering St Pete, FL

    I want to thank you and your team at Olympia Catering for making my son's wedding on October 27, 2018 special. Everything was exactly how they had planned and they appreciated you tending to their needs during the event, thank you! All of your recommendations for vendors were right on point too! Food was delicious, the bar was flowing and the DJ dropped just the right music. Centerpieces looked fabulous. And the museum, what can I say, it was perfect setting for this beautiful couple. Nancy you and your team took care of everything, right down to breaking down the event and loading everything in our cars allowing us to spend extra special time with our out of town guests! St Pete and the Museum of Fin Arts is the perfect place for a wedding!!!

    This place is dream. I remember from the very first time I saw a wedding party outside of the museum taking photos about 4 years ago, I knew I wanted to have my wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts. Flash forward to two weeks ago and here I am, marrying my best friend at the most beautiful venue in town. Such an incredible place, fantastic location, great hotels and restaurants nearby for guests, and the staff was freaking FANTASTIC! Especially Nancy and Tina. Nancy was like a speed bullet when it came to answering my (many, many) emails and questions. Yes, it may lean more on the pricey side, but it is WORTH IT. I wish the event could have lasted forever. Thanks for everything Nancy an everyone at the MFA.
