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.Sent on 08/08/2019

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.Sent on 08/20/2017

I am the mother of the groom and wanted to help our future daughter-in-law in selecting the 'perfect' venue for their wedding. Friends, who are benefactors to the HMNS, told us about being able to have parties at the HMNS and so we were most interested in renting the Cullen Hall of Gems & Minerals for their wedding and reception. Our point of contact was Ashley and from day 1 was amazing. She truly 'held our hands' and guided us to help tie everything together. You must use City Kitchen Catering for all alcohol/bar - they were terrific and she provided us the names of their approved catering companies - we selected Culinaire Catering and we are so pleased we did...fabulous job and attention to details + everyone said the food was the best they had ever eaten at a reception. We had 90 people - very comfortable and all enjoyed being able to walk around and look at the beautiful exhibits. It was truly over the top!Sent on 03/10/2016
