    We had our rehearsal dinner at the PG Museum of Natural History, and it was perfect! The atmosphere is so cool - very minimal decorations needed because many exhibits are permanent and remain in place for guests to browse. Beautiful market lights are already in the space. We rented mostly standing cocktail tables with some sit down tables and had a "roaming" dinner. Sit down tables and chairs supplied by museum with a membership. We rented the kitchen for easy access for the caterer. Museum has very reasonable pricing for rental of glassware and water dispensers. Overall it worked wonderfully.

    Maya was very responsive and accommodating throughout the planning process and had really good ideas for the details of the night (music, speeches, etc.). She met with our caterer in person beforehand which I really appreciated (and they did too). Maya and the museum staff do make it very clear that they are completely "hands off" in regards to any set up or breakdown. My volunteer family and friends were on their own to set up an empty museum space (I was squeezing in our rehearsal ceremony at the ceremony site). So, get a good team of helpers and map out a detailed plan for them! Clean up of kitchen is done by museum staff for a reasonable fee, which was helpful since we were swooped off to an impromptu after party.

    I really LOVED this space and our guests keep raving about the event! It was almost a wedding before a wedding :) Highly recommended for a memorable event. (I will add photos soon- so beautiful!)
