The one goal my husband and I had for our wedding venue was that it needed to be amazing on its own, because we didn’t want to pay to decorate a generic reception hall. You can’t go wrong with the Durham! We rented the entire museum, holding our ceremony in the Great Hall upstairs, and our reception Trackside downstairs. Our guests were able to view the permanent exhibits throughout the night, and between the museum and the Soda Fountain, our guests were never bored. Everyone I talked to at the museum was very helpful, and worked seamlessly with our wedding planner (Jen Mrsny with Cherry On Top Events by Jen).

This venue was perfect. We received a lot of comments on how beautiful the Swanson Gallery is from the guest attending(most from out of town). The staff was very friendly and professional. Lori Beck was our contact and she was great to work with and very accommodating. I would recommend this venue to anyone. Make sure you take pictures downstairs! The trains were pretty cool.

The Durham is such a beautiful venue! We got married over Thanksgiving weekend. Everything was perfect, except they told us at the beginning of November that we couldn't open the soda shop :( I'm not sure if there was a miscommunication or they dropped the ball. Honestly, it doesn't really matter - just make sure you get it in writing as early as possible if that is something that you want! Other than that everything was literally perfect and stress free!
