    What an amazing location! I wanted a venue for our reception that was unique and meaningful to my husband and I. My husband is a retired Marine and I am a museum junkie! I also wanted it to be a fun and exciting destination as the majority of our guests were from out of town and half are also retired service members. The NMMC fit the bill for everything. I was actually very pleasantly surprised by how good the catering was at our tasting. I had been concerned about not being able to use an outside vendor, but it was not a problem at all. The open bar was fantastic and everyone loved it! Even a friend who is an admitted wine snob was complimenting one of the white wine selections. Pam, Kathleen and Kendall were all wonderful to work with and so responsive. We had a minor crisis with the guest list just an hour before our reception and they handled it without batting an eyelash. Great night and great memories!

    Working with the staff at the National Museum of the Marine Corps was a FANTASTIC experience! Our venue contact Kendall was great to work with during all our pre planning meetings with our client. She was onsite on the night of the wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Our Catering Manger Kathleen communicated with us on final catering details and floor plans. On event day, the staff did a wonderful job with presentation and service. We had a pre planned special request for the reception, and the catering team executed the surprise distribution of “la hora loca” props flawlessly. Our couple and guests all had a great time!

    This is a fantastic Museum and tribute to the Marine Corp. I was privileged to be allowed to take engagement photos at this location for a client who served in the Marine Corp. My wife and I returned the next day to walk through the museum and were impressed at the exhibits!
