Stunning Ceremony Venue
We rented the second floor hall (with chairs and access to the large board room connected to the balcony - highly recommend these additions) for our wedding ceremony in November and cannot recommend this stunning space enough!! We were so pleasantly surprised to also have catered drinks and snacks, a personal bridal attendant, and a number of incredibly helpful staff and liasons who worked seamlessly alongside our wedding planner, officiant, and photographer to make our ceremony and pre/post ceremony photos PERFECT! Leading up to the Big Day we also enjoyed well organized interactions with all of the staff, a couple of wonderful visits and walk throughs (I cried when I saw the space for the first time, it is THAT perfect) and they allowed us to use the space the day before our ceremony for our rehearsal with our (large!) wedding party and immediate families. Although one of the venue's staff members who we worked with for most of our planning left just before our wedding, the replacement staff picked up where she left off beautifully and never missed a beat. It was hands down the most beautiful venue we could've imagined for our wedding ceremony. Thank you so much Museum of the American Revolution!!!

Once in a lifetime experience
When we walked into AmRev for the first time, we knew we wanted to get married there. Tori and the team made our wedding experience fantastic from the planning stages to the actual wedding. Tori was flexible, open to our ideas and let us create the day we wanted from food stations, getting married in front of the beautiful staircase and utilizing the screen in the reception room for a short video. We feel that the flexibility made our experience special from other more "corporate" venues and museums in the area. The wedding was flawless and the entire team (Brulee catering, Jason - catering captain, Jessica - wedding attendant and security) was friendly and attentive to our guests. We received so many compliments on the food (from cheese steaks and hoagies to our ice cream station), the charming and intimate venue and the ability to walk through the exhibits during the cocktail hour. Everyone told us they felt like it was a VIP experience. If we had to do it again, we would make the same decision.Sent on 01/04/2020

Amazing Experience - Definitely recommend!
The Museum was an incredibly beautiful, classy, and FUN venue for our wedding - my husband and I are history nerds and absolutely loved being able to have our special day in such a meaningful place. It was especially nice to have the exhibits open to our guests during cocktail hour!Sent on 10/23/2019
