    Most unique venue!

    HMNS was the perfect venue for our wedding! My husband and I wanted something unique and, with both of us working in the science fields, HMNS just felt right. We rented the Grand Entry Hall for the ceremony and the Paleontology Hall for the cocktail hour and reception. There were a lot of moving pieces (since absolutely everything needs to be provided by outside vendors), but Joe Cyrus (the Special Events Director) worked one-on-one with our wedding planner to ensure that our wedding day went flawlessly. Joe was so nice, accommodating, and very easy to work with! This was the venue of our dreams and our guests are still raving about how amazing it was!

    Great experience at the Sugar Land location

    We used the Sugar Land location and it was perfect. Everyone has told us that they loved our unconventional venue and that it was perfect for us as a couple that loves science. Adrienne was great as well. She was very accommodating to most of our requests. We also loved that we had plenty of space for our entire wedding (ceremony upstairs, cocktail hour and reception downstairs, and outdoor garden for games). Our guests were very excited to be able to go look at the exhibits throughout the reception.

    We had our reception at the HMNS Sugar Land Branch. It was fantastic! We could not have asked for a better venue. With the venue rental, we got the entire two stories of permanent exhibits to ourselves to explore and use. Cocktail hour with the dinosaurs, dinner with geodes, etc. All of our friends and family loved it! Adrienne was extremely helpful with every question we had. The museum really emphasized making sure they and all the vendors were on the same page, which was appreciated.
