Unique Venue with High Quality Service & Food
We just had our wedding at the museum and could not have had a better experience. The planning process was seamless, with Tori making everything so easy for us!Sent on 11/25/2018
The day of went flawlessly as well, Brulee offers plenty of servers so there was no waiting on food - apps or the entree, and the quality of the food was amazing - compared to some other venues, you can really tell that the food is made fresh and hors d'oeuvre's weren't just heated from frozen, which is what some other Philly venues do. The bridal attendant and staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to work with all of our other vendors.
Finally - the venue itself is amazing and really sets itself apart from any other ballroom or typical wedding location. We had cocktails in the 3rd floor ballroom, which is so beautiful, and had the reception in the lobby area, which allowed us to have a grand entrance using the stairs, and a one of a kind atmosphere.
Museum of the American Revolution's reply:Thank you Grace & Tim! It was a pleasure working with you both and so nice to see everything come together beautifully. Wishing you all the best.

Fantastic Wedding Experience!
Beautiful, modern facilities that fit right in with historic Philadelphia. Tori and Brûlée catering were superb to work with - always responsive, great suggestions, able to accommodate various special dietary needs with no problem. Our guests all commented on how delicious the food was, and what a great job the entire staff did “day of” to keep everything on time, guests well cared for, and an amazing day for the bride and groom. Can’t say enough about how great they were to work with!Sent on 09/16/2019

Nothing short of amazing
We got married here on 12/7/18 and had the most wonderful time! From the beginning the staff at MOAR and Brûlée were so helpful, informative, and kind. Tori and Ashley were wonderful to work with, they answered all of our questions in a timely manner and were able to provide a ton of helpful suggestions and tips along the way! The day of the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, they were extremely attentive. The entire wedding ran so smoothly from the ceremony all the way through the end of the night. MOAR and Brûlée offer nothing but a memorable evening from the setting to the food to the drinks. They were so accommodating to dietary needs/preferences and our guests STILL talk about the food they had at our wedding. We had such a great experience here at the MOAR, I would HIGHLY recommend this place for a wedding.Sent on 12/27/2018
