    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.
