Most beautiful venue in DC

We fell in love with NMWA museum the second we saw it. We had been struggling to find a place in DC that met all of our needs and budget. NMWA was worth every penny. The staff was super helpful in answering our questions throughout the process. They also have a long list of recommended vendors with different price points. Our friends and family were blown away by how beautiful everything was.

What a beautiful and perfect spot to get married. We did both the ceremony and reception here, and everyone told me how much they loved the space. They were super easy to deal with, but know going in that you're going to have to bring in ALL the vendors... the museum doesn't provide anything other than the space, and their expertise... which was actually super plentiful and much appreciated!

The Perfect Classic DC Wedding Venue

When choosing wedding reception venues in DC there are a lot of great options, but I couldn't be happier that we went with the National Museum of Women in the Arts. A truly elegant and gorgeous space, the Women's Museum was the perfect size and definitely a unique spot with the art galleries and second floor mezzanine. Guests couldn't get over the beautiful chandeliers and had so much fun taking photos there. We choose to have our cocktail hour on the mezzanine level followed by dinner/ dancing on the first floor. The staff here were very helpful in the planning process and providing their recommended vendors. The night felt like a fairy tale!
