Our wedding at the museum was perfect!

We had our wedding upstairs at the museum and it was the best day ever. The views of Reno are beautiful from the rooftop where we did the ceremony. The reception room is also wonderful. The catering and bar service were great, and Nikki was amazing to work with and plan the whole thing. They were also super flexible and easy to work with when we had to postpone for a year because of COVID. The museum made our wedding day perfect!

We used the Art Museum's auditorium and Chez Louie for my proposal and a private dinner. Nisha was very helpful in setting it all up, and the dining experience at Chez Louie was unforgettable.

Book this Venue!!! We had been looking for a place to have our wedding for 2 years. When we heard about the Museum we thought "maybe" then we met with Nisha and it all felt right. I could go on about the whole experience, the staff, the food (outstanding) , Sonja & Nisha- it was flawless! Everyone of our guest's commented on how wonderful the evening was. Thank you to Mark Estee, the wonderful staff and most importantly Nisha & Sonja- You lady's rock!
