About National Infantry Museum

The National Infantry Museum, located in Columbus, Georgia, can be used as a historic ceremony and reception venue for couples. Situated 15 minutes from downtown Columbus, the museum features more than 70,000 artifacts from the last 240 years of American military history. A truly unique location for a wedding, guests will certainly remember private tours of the Last 100 Yards Ramp, the gorgeous Front Rotunda architecture during the ceremony, and the elegant Grand Hall.

Facilities and Capacity
The museum has both indoor and outdoor spaces to be used for ceremonies and receptions. Couples can use the beautifully restored WWII Street Chapel for a smaller ceremony, or the larger Cavezza Hall or Lobby for larger weddings. The Lobby boasts 6,500 square feet of floor space for a ceremony or reception, while Cavezza Hall offers views of artifacts such as helicopters and Bradley Fighting Vehicles for up to 500 guests. While post-ceremony pictures are being taken, guests can relax in the Mezzanine, an open gallery, for cocktail hour. The walls of Heritage Hall are lined with signed prints from celebrated military artist, James Dietz, which can be viewed during the reception by up to 150 guests. The Heritage Hall walls can also be covered in drapery if couples would rather choose a neutral backdrop for the reception. If a night under the stars is preferred, the museum’s Courtyard provides a gorgeous outdoor setting, complete with old-south lampposts and a brick-walled garden. Guests can use the on-site parking and wheelchair access to enter the museum.

Services Offered
The National Infantry Museum offers on-site catering, as well as supplying a trusted, preferred vendor list for couples. They are also completely equipped with an integrated audio-visual setup and other portable systems for presentation technology such as slideshows.

    Perfection

    The NIM was the perfect venue to host our wedding and reception. Everything was flawless. Our wedding was in the Atrium and the reception was in Cavezza Hall.
