Easy to work with through COVID
We didn't end up getting married here but I'd still recommend them. When the original shutdown happened in March they immediately went to work on backup and alternate plans with couples. They allowed us to put soft holds on dates in Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 even though our original contract said we could only postpone up to 6 months out. The staff responded pretty quickly to all emails (including pre-COVID) and were great at answering our questions.Sent on 07/15/2020
Also a good place to get engagement photos!
The Mariners' Museum and Park's reply:Rose, you and Anthony were such an amazing couple to work with from the very beginning! Thank you for your kind review and for being so understanding during this crazy COVID situation. Even though things didn't work out as originally planned, y'all were so sweet to include us in your special day by sending sneak peak photos - we are still swooning over them! We truly wish you both the absolute best in life!!

Fabulous Wedding Venue
The Mariners' Museum was a fabulous wedding venue! It is beautiful and both inside and out. The staff was absolutely amazing! They worked hard to ensure that we were comfortable with everything about our day (set-up, parking, rehearsal, what would be supplied, etc.) and they were extremely responsive. I could not imagine have my wedding anywhere else and am so appreciative for the staff the worked so hard to help us create a perfect day!Sent on 10/24/2019

The Mariners' Museum and Park Price Rates
The Mariner's Museum is one of those great spots that may not come to mind when you first think about wedding venues. However, they offer a variety of unique indoor and outdoor spaces for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. I've had the pleasure to work there several times. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. They don't disappear once your event gets going - as is the case at some venues. Whether your guest list is large or small, be sure to check them out!
I love this venue! I love the event director too. The two together create a dynamite event! A classy event is sure to be held at The Mariner's Museum!!
Various locations throughout the museum to have your event. Main Lobby, Huntington Room, or the beautiful courtyard are all great places to get married.
