    The MOMI was our PERFECT wedding venue. We were able to do the ceremony and reception seamlessly in one spot, and BG, Director of Events, was above and beyond amazing. He was so organized and responsive, and recommended wonderful vendors for everything we needed. It is the perfect spot for a unique NYC wedding, and it's such a treat to be able to use the entire venue (exhibits included) for the big day. You can personalize so many things at the venue (show home videos, project photos, pick your ceremony background, etc) and it is absolutely perfect for pictures and photo ops. The entire staff was extremely prompt, responsible, friendly and professional from the event tour up until the big day. BG helps you stay organized to ensure ever detail is ironed out to make the day absolutely perfect and stress free. I cannot say enough good things about BG and his team at the MOMI!

    If you want to skip the cookie-cutter hotel ballroom, gaudy catering hall, or are burnt out on barn weddings, this is the place for you.

    I just got married over the weekend, and it was everything we had hoped for and more. BG Hacker, who handles all special events for the museum, is the most organized, calming and detail-oriented person I've ever worked with. I am so thankful to have had him working with us every step of the way.

    The museum is a clean slate, and really allows you to get as inventive as you'd like with your ceremony and reception. We had a galaxy-inspired wedding complete with twinkling stars, glowing orbs, and cosmic decor. We even made our own mini-movie, which guests got to watch in the Egyptian-themed Tut's Fever theater. The best part is knowing that we can go back to our wedding venue at any time to relive some of the magic.

    There was plenty of room for our full buffet dinner and open bar, and it was nice enough outside for guests to enjoy the beautiful outdoor courtyard.

    Our guests are still talking about all of the exhibits, especially the custom flip books they made. Where else can you play Donkey Kong, see Freddy Kruger, and voiceover "Babe: Pig in the City"?

    As a long-time museum member, and a proud Astoria resident, I'm so glad we chose MOMI as our venue.
