About Old Red Museum

Old Red Museum is a breathtaking historical wedding venue situated in the heart of Dallas, Texas. Dating back to the 1800s, this eye-catching property was once the seat of government and community for the Dallas County area. Now, this building serves as a museum and unique event venue for all to enjoy. You and your guests will be dazzled by the Romanesque architecture, four-story staircase, and abundance of lovingly restored original features throughout. These elements combine to create a magical atmosphere for your most special day.

Facilities and Capacity

From the moment your wedding guests enter this venue, they will be struck by the inherent grandeur of this property. An expansive entryway constructed of marble and stone leads to the original four-story staircase, which provides a picturesque location for stunning wedding photography. This venue offers two timeless venues for your heartfelt wedding ceremony. The Hatton W. Sumners Courtroom has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of 1892 and offers seating for 120 of your loved ones. This event space is ideal for those who wish to immerse themselves in the enchanting elegance of this era. The Restoration Room is perfect for larger ceremonies of up to 250 guests. Here, large picture windows and high ceilings allow an abundance of light to shine in and create a fairytale ambiance. A polished wooden platform provides the ideal stage for you and your partner to exchange solemn vows. Your guests can enjoy discovering the building’s history and exhibits on the fourth floor while sipping champagne and mingling before the main celebration. For your reception event, The Great Hall can comfortably accommodate up to 300 seated guests within its regal setting. The high ceiling is enhanced with decorative chandeliers, while large windows and thick carpeting add to the beauty of this room. A spacious, private get-ready room is also available on the property, giving you and your wedding party a convenient and comfortable space to prepare for your special day.

    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.

    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!

    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.
