The perfect venue for us!

We had the most amazing wedding reception at the museum after a beautiful ceremony in South Straub Park. Lindsay was so sweet to work with and she worked with our day-of coordinator to ensure we had the MOST PERFECT day, better than I could have ever imagined!

We rented the full museum and had a scavenger hunt during cocktail hour, which our guests loved! The Flight One Gallery was perfect and I was so happy with how it all came out. We met in St. Pete and LOVE living here, so we were so happy to be able to embrace that with our wedding venue and the theme of our wedding. So many guests complimented how authentic our wedding felt, and I think that was because we chose such a wonderful (and totally under-utilized) venue.

We hadn't been able to see a lot of reviews of the museum after the Pier opened but it is great! We had originally been disappointed that we couldn't get married right there (the parking lot has taken over the grassy area they used to have), but there are so many options nearby with the pier and the nearby parks.

I truly cannot say enough about how great our wedding was! We also appreciated all the vendor recommendations - they were all fantastic. Thank you so much, Lindsay!

We just had our wedding at the Museum of History and I can't say enough what a wonderful experience it was. Planning a wedding is super stressful but the staff at the museum helped make the process as seamless as possible. Caitlin was wonderful to work with up until the very end. The wedding went off without a hitch and my guests had a wonderful time. Thank you all so much for helping make our day so special!

After visiting almost every venue in St. Petersburg, we were thrilled to find the Museum of History. The museum is centrally located on the water with a backdrop of downtown St. Petersburg. It has been recently renovated to include gorgeous hardwood floors. We were able to rent out the entire museum, with the cocktail hour in the exhibit room and the reception in the flight gallery (featuring a full scale replica of the first commercial flight in the United States). We installed up-lighting and the entire venue, with its beautiful floor to ceiling windows, shone. The wedding coordinator for the museum was Caitlin, who was an absolute dream. She handled every detail with grace and ease, and was friendly and enthusiastic throughout the process. Many of the guests complimented us on our choice of venue. I highly recommend the Museum of History to any bride looking for a stunning, unique, and affordable reception.
