About The Memphis Grand Carousel Pavilion and Ballroom

After a careful restoration, we have reopened the 1909 Dentzel Carousel at the Children’s Museum of Memphis to share with city!

At night, the carousel ballroom is transformed into an elegant and bright venue for galas, weddings, fundraising events, bridal showers, and even birthday parties! Contact our Carousel Events and Operations Manager today to schedule a tour of the Carousel Pavilion for your next event!

    Magical Wedding night!

    My matron of honor suggested this venue because she's a member of the Children's Museum (no they do not offer discounts to members). At first I was hesitant, it was so untraditional, it didn't seem big enough. and the museum doesn't close until 5pm, which would make us have an evening wedding. But after touring other venues in the area, I could not pass up the value of the venue. The price was very reasonable and the accommodations included free parking, tables, and chairs. In addition, you can bring in your own caterer and bartender! SOLD! Throughout the 10 months of planning, the event planning staff at the museum was very responsive and was always open to ideas and concepts especially since they're a fairly new venue. We were able to hold our rehearsal there the night before and they had already set up all 28 of my guest tables and I was in total shock of how much space there was!! On the wedding day everything went smoothly and once decorated the space exceeded my expectations! The hall were our ceremony was held felt very intimate and in the reception area the lights off of the carousel created an atmosphere of love that's indescribable. Oh, and the bridal suite was huge!! My wedding day was perfect and I would highly suggest this venue to any bride seeking a venue for intimacy and character!

    Thanks so much for the review, Janessa! It was a beautiful wedding and were honored you chose to hold your special day here at the Children's Museum Grand Carousel Pavilion --it's not often that money spent on venues goes STRAIGHT BACK to support kids in Memphis and the surrounding communities! The best wishes to you and Justin!
