    The Perfect Unique Location

    We are SO HAPPY we chose the Mariners' Museum to use as our wedding venue. I had been looking for a cool spot that had visual elements already in place in the room, that wouldn't require excessive decorating. This was it! We loved the eagle as the back drop for our head table, the large window and lighthouse for our ceremony space, the ship as the dance floor. Everything was so unique compared to more traditional wedding venues, and we took advantage of the option to keep the museum loop open during our reception, which the guests really enjoyed. They had also restructured the packages since we originally signed the contract, and the ability to use the entire main lobby side of the building allowed us to separate the ceremony, cocktail, and reception spaces.

    The team at the museum was so great to work with. They were very helpful in suggestions for layout and working with our vendors for setup, and I loved that their list of approved caterers helped us easily narrow down options without having to look at everyone in the area. It was also super helpful that all tables and chairs were included and setup prior to our arrival the day of the wedding.

    Overall, I absolutely recommend the Mariners' Museum for your wedding venue. We had a great experience!

    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!

    Various locations throughout the museum to have your event. Main Lobby, Huntington Room, or the beautiful courtyard are all great places to get married.
