A hidden gem in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls. This beautiful historic building was the stage for our perfect day. Not only does the venue offer a perfect setting for beautiful wedding portraits, it also was the perfect touch of class and ambiance for our vows. The event coordinator was very kind, on point, and professional. The price point was amazingly reasonable. I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/15/2015

While we did not have our wedding ceremony here, the museum is one of my favorite historical sites in the city. When weather threatened my wedding day outdoor photos and my 300$ hair and makeup, I called the museum for a plan B. Though my wedding was only a week away, they were wonderful, immediately assuring me the building would be available and booked us for the wedding day photo shoot for only a small fee. On day of wedding they welcomed my rowdy wedding party and the rain even held off for outdoor photos around the building. I was so thankful I doubled the fee and told them to keep it as a donation to help preserve the building. Only issue was it being pretty hot inside, and that was to be expected with the age of the site.Sent on 06/27/2015

We knew from the get go that we wanted to get married in a historical location. We knew right away that the Old Courthouse Museum had to be it. The venue is absolutely beautiful. The people there are very accommodating and will meet with you whenver need be. They had the place set up perfectly the night before so there we no worries and everyone there made us feel less stressful. Such a beautiful, friendly, accommodating place. Great location.Sent on 08/30/2012
We have performed at many events at the Old Court House Museum. What a wonderfully unique location for a wedding and reception. They also have a ton of great places to take photos
This exquisite museum being a landmark of downtown Sioux Falls for many years is the perfect venue for any occasion or celebration. Tracy along with the rest of the museum staff take such pride in preserving the beauty and history of the building so they can share it with you for your event. The feel and history of such a great landmark gives your guests an outstanding experience from the beautiful outdoor corridor to the courtroom and law library on 2nd floor.
