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.

    Amazing wedding for my daughter

    I take this opportunity to write a review regarding our experience this past weekend, March 23. We had our daughter's wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts. We cannot express in enough words the amazing wedding we had and attribute this to one person - Nancy!

    For three days now, we have been receiving calls, texts and emails from all our guests raving about the wedding. It was an outstanding awesome and MAGICAL weekend. The raves all include the venue, food, and music. The overall timeline of the affair was absolutely perfect and everything went as Nancy promised and beyond expectations. The food and service were excellent and it was because of Nancy and Stacy. We thank them for helping to make this a most memorable milestone in our lives and the lives of our children. We get tears of happiness in our eyes as we write this review and as we constantly play back the entire wedding.
    Nancy is a very special person. We started working with her about a year ago and from the first time we met her we knew we were in good hands. She has a job to do, like all of us, but she puts her heart into what she does and it really shows. She was always available to us regardless of the day or time. Please know that we had looked at several venues and there were others we liked, but ultimately settled on MFA. However, none of the other places had a catering specialist that matched the professionalism, personality and sense of humor like Nancy.

    We will forever have gratitude for the role she played in our daughter's wedding. We commend her and the staff for a job well done.
    We highly recommend the Museum of Fine Arts for all brides, grooms and parents of brides and grooms. It is a beautiful venue with excellend food and service by Nancy and Olympia Caterers.

    Beautiful Venue

    Nancy and the staff at MFA we’re amazing! We got married on March 15, 2019 in the Membership Garden as we wanted an “outdoor” wedding, but still wanted our privacy. The garden couldn’t be more perfect! Our cocktail hour was on the Terrace where guest were able to enjoy the beauty of our city. The reception was in the Conservatory which was stunning! The pictures we captured with the high windows and simplicity of the venue was everything. We had our DJ do the uplighting on the walls which made the museum even more elegant and romantic. The location is everything as we were able to capture amazing pictures and continue the party DTSP!
