The Old Red Museum was a great venue for our wedding! We wanted something unique and flexible that allowed us to customize our wedding day. They allowed for us to bring in our own vendors and alcohol which helped make our day special. The venue itself was gorgeous and a perfect set up for both the ceremony and reception. Lawrence was great to work with - very laid back and also helped us with the lighting and parking. Definitely great value for our money.Sent on 06/16/2017

Booking my wedding at Old Red Museum was one of the wedding planning decisions I know I did right! The venue is perfect- it's a beautiful historic building that looks like a castle on the outside and we were able to have both our ceremony and reception on the 4th floor. They have both a bridal and a groom's suite and we were allowed to use that space to get ready as early as 9am on our wedding day. One of my favorite features of this venue was all of the windows and natural sunlight! The reception space has some beautiful views of downtown Dallas as well- especially at night! Casey and Laurence were both extremely helpful and responsive, and always open to give valuable advice and tips whenever I needed it! To top it off, their price is unbeatable in the Dallas area! Definitely would recommend this venue to any brides on a budget!Sent on 10/15/2016

Such a beautiful wedding venue in the heart of Downtown Dallas.
Excellent venue. Ideal for ceremony and reception in one location. I have done many, many weddings at Old Red. The staff is attentive to your needs and are very prompt in their service.
One of our Ministers Rev. Paul Shirley did a wedding at the Old Red Courthouse this weekend and as always we just loved everything about it. It is such a classy location with such history and great location for pictures.
