fantastic all the way around!

We held our son's rehearsal dinner at the Museum, and it was a "10" in every way. Our caterers were able to provide us great service from their kitchen. We had drinks and appetizers, followed by a seated dinner. The location was ideal. Easy parking, perfectly located downtown, convenient on and off the highway. The museum itself made for the BEST fun, and will be long remembered by our guests. We are hosting a party for our daughter's wedding there next December...THAT'S how much we love it!

Unique and Exellent Choice!

The Coker Museum was the perfect venue for my reception! It’s so unique, which was something I really valued during my wedding planning, and that really showed in my pictures. The space is super versatile and could be set up for a big or small wedding and the staff was SO helpful—they went above and beyond to help me create exactly what I was envisioning for our special day. I would recommend this venue to anyone!
