Working with Teri and the museum staff was great. Everything about the day was perfect. All of our guests loved the venue and couldn't stop talking about how cool it. They have their own caterer that makes for one less decision to make, the food was awesome. They also gave us a list of other vendors they have worked with in the past that helped us narrow some searches. Teri was also great about reaching out to other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page which was immensely helpful. I couldn't say enough great things about the museum and our experience getting married there.Sent on 12/19/2018

The team at the museum was amazing!!!! They took my planning ideas and just made them better!Sent on 05/15/2018
We chose to have both our ceremony and reception here. And after food, gratuity (they can't charge tax so they have a mandatory 18%gratuity) we spent a little under $4500 to have 130 people in attendance.
If you are looking for a small wedding and to do something different, this is definitely a great place.
Oh, and they do all the set up and clean up. All they require is that you provide them with whatever decorations you want put up, and they do the rest. A lot of other venues we looked at that were more expensive were going to require us to do the set up and clean up. So if you want some place lower maintenance for you, definitely check this place out as a possible wedding venue

We had such a great experience at this venue. The staff are super knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Teri, the banquet coordinator, is a fantastic resource and is super organized - absolutely every last detail was taken care of. Nate is the events coordinator, and he was also very easy to work with. The caterer, Diane, was just wonderful to work with, and the catering team and bartending staff were great. There's plenty of stuff for guests to visit and look at, nearby hotels and restaurants, and lots and lots of free parking. We had a guest count of 115, and the final bill was very reasonable - we spent about $50 per guest (includes the space fee, food, and a beer/wine hosted bar). The museum has event staff that do all the setup and tear down. We did heavy appetizer stations in lieu of dinner, which isn't their usual setup but worked well in the space.Sent on 09/13/2016
We got married in the depot room and had our reception in the exhibit space. One thing about the depot room that you might want to know if you are considering this venue is that it is only a few feet away from an active train track. The trains do slow down, but they're not silent. Just in case that's a dealbreaker! We didn't mind.
Nothing but happy thoughts about this whole place.
Always impressed with the Valentine Dinner at the National River Museum! Thank you for another lovely, fun filled evening, and delicious dinner in such beautiful atmosphere. We will plan on visiting the river museum throughout the year! Lisa
