    Stunning Venue; Incredible Views; Great Value

    We fell in love with the museum when we were looking for Old City venues; the Museum of the American Revolution is an incredible deal for an Old City wedding. The staff is responsive, flexible, and so skilled at making your special day entirely stress-free (even if you don't have a wedding planner). The Liberty Hall room has breathtaking views of both Old City and glimpses of the skyline, and the lighting in the room is amazing both day and night. We had a micro-wedding during the day and our musician did not need to connect to the AV system because the room is so acoustically sound. Other highlights include: amazing location to local hotels, access to the balconies for stunning pictures (weather-permitting), and, if the museum is not open to the public, pictures of the grand staircase. Despite having a wedding in the fall of a pandemic, the Museum made us have the wedding of our dreams.

    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!!! Photos attached are by Daniel Moyer Photography.
