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.
