We aren't your regular everyday wedding venue- we're the National Infantry Museum. Nominated by USA Today for being the Nations Number 1 best free Museum. We're located in Columbus, Georgia, right outside of Fort Benning. The NIM is a grand setting to be in and one that's sure to delight and suprise all of your guests on your big day. If you're truly wanting to have an amazing wedding experience, give us a call because we're probably going to have a great time working together.

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.

    National Infantry Museum Wedding Review - The Williams

    My wedding at the National Infantry Museum exceeded all my expectations. The staff was incredible and made the process of wedding planning much easier. Wesley is an amazing chef and created a beautiful rehearsal and reception menu. Megan was a blessing to have for this event. Her services are completely worth getting! Her positive attitude, expertise, and willingness to help where ever needed, was the icing on top of the cake. My family, friends, myself, and now husband couldn't have been happier to have gotten married at The National Infantry Museum.

    Jessica Kennedy the best to ever do it

    When I say Jessica was the best to ever do it. Jessica made my experience at the Infantry Museum the best. Jessica is the reason I am able to recommend this venue. When things weren't coming together the way I thought they would and there Jessica was. She crossed every "t" and dotted every "i". Jessica deserves a huge raise and after this experience she's family to me. I appreciate her and so does my family, because she went above and beyond her job title and made my amazing day spectacular. Thanks Jessica Kennedy you are truly a blessing and your talent is priceless.

    National Infantry Museum's reply:

    Santressa, It was my pleasure! I really enjoyed working with you and your creative energy. I am so happy you trusted us to carry out your big day. Everything turned out fabulous!

    I'm so happy for you and Michael. Cheers to many more years!
    - Jess
