About National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force

The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, based in Pooler, Georgia, is a historic venue available for wedding ceremonies and receptions. This facility is available for rental in order to support the museum, so the events management staff is very dedicated to ensuring your day progresses without a hitch. Their one-of-a-kind rooms create a unique event space capable of hosting over 250 people, while the Memorial Gardens’ reflecting pond, gazebos, and vine-covered archways are ideal for gorgeous outside photos.

Facilities and Capacity
The Chapel located in the Memorial Gardens seats 120 people and is a lovely place to hold nuptials. Stained glass windows and exposed beams frame the picturesque interior, while the gardens outside boast lush greenery and intimate spots to capture a most perfect day. Inside the museum, the large, circular Rotunda seats 260 and has 30-foot-high ceilings. The wedding party can make a grand entrance on the sweeping staircases, surrounded by walls decorated with state flags. In the Art Gallery, guests can view the museum’s private collection of aviation art during a reception that can accommodate up to 130 individuals. For a smaller and more intimate party, the High Wycombe Room can seat up to 80 guests. This room is decorated with exquisite gold mirrors and botanical prints. Our newest available room rental, our Combat Gallery, will provide your guests with not only a jaw dropping view, but a reception under the wings of our B-17, one they will never forget! It can seat up to 70 guests. The building is handicap accessible and has plenty of parking for guests.

Services Offered
The museum offers a complimentary on-site bridal suite for the day of the wedding. Included in the room rental are the chairs and tables needed for ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, and engagement parties, as well as set up and break down of the seating. Linens can also be provided upon request. An event manager is also on-hand to coordinate your big day and handle last-minute changes. Before the wedding day, the museum allows couples to use their Special Events Department to help plan the day of details of the wedding. This team can be as hands-on as needed, outlining the full wedding day details or simply providing referrals for preferred vendors.. The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force holds a liquor license and can help couples design the bar service that most suits their needs.

    The chapel is amazing and so beautiful! The reception venue options are also great! The staff were courteous, professional and went above and beyond in helping me both plan and organize the ceremony and reception as well as keep everything on schedule and stress free on the big day! Prices are also reasonable for a bride on a budget! I would definitely recommend this venue!

    The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force was a perfect place to have our wedding ceremony and wedding reception. The chapel was beautiful and romantic and the pub was a fun spot to entertain our 55 guests with music, drinks and food. Holly, the wedding director, did a phenomenal job with helping us plan and organize our wedding day. Since we were out of town and having a destination wedding, the recommendation for vendors really helped ease the stress. Every recommendation was perfect! The location of the venue was beautiful, as it had greenery and historical figures outside, which added more character to our wedding photos. The staff at the museum was always so welcoming and caring. I would recommend this venue to anyone, either living in Pooler or savannah or is having a destination wedding like we did. We would not have changed anything about our wedding day and having it at the Mighty Eighth! It was perfect!

    The Mighty 8th is a very unique venue. The Chapel is wonderful and they have banquet spaces of varying size and decor for brides to choose between. The event staff at the Mighty 8th are always so accommodating and helpful. It is one of our favourite locations.

  • Weddings by Rev. Joe Wedding Officiants

    This is one of THE BEST venues in the Savannah area! The chapel and facilities are beautiful. The best part, though, is the staff at the Mighty Eighth! Susan and her team make sure that every detail is taken care of. I HIGHLY recommend this venue!!!!
