    Highlight of our wedding

    The museum was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception. Tiffany was a responsive point person and helped coordinate with our multiple vendors, saving us a great deal of worry on our wedding day. Our guests -- both adults and kids -- loved being able to roam the museum and take in the exhibits. The museum's different spaces allowed us to have different setups for our cocktail hour and dinner. And nothing beats dancing under the whale. We highly recommend this fun and affordable venue.

    Museum of the Earth's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Madeline - It was a pleasure to work with you and Will on your special day! The team here at the Museum of the Earth are thrilled to hear you had a great experience, and that your guests enjoyed the space so much. We're proud to be able to offer such a unique venue for such special events! We wish you and Will nothing but happiness!
