    Wedding DJs love this Venue!

    We had the pleasure of DJing a wedding at the New Children's Museum a few weeks ago and can report having a wonderful experience. The museum is a fun and unique place for a wedding, and the layout works well for the entire event. We highly recommend it if you are looking for a venue for your upcoming wedding!

    Great venue to DJ and work at!

    I recently worked at The New Children’s Museum as a DJ/MC for a wedding and I had an awesome time. It was truly a wedding to remember and it would have been a lot more work for me without help from Erica, Carlie, Mary Lou, and Kendall (I hope I spelled those names correctly). From the beginning of the day to the end of the day Erica took charge regarding any questions I had related to the venue. Carlie was extremely helpful when it came time to open up the dance floor to all of the guests and I needed help lowering the lights (the lighting system is apparently very complicated yet Carlie was unfazed). Mary Lou and Kendall were very helpful with any questions I had and also very kindly helped me during the load-out from the venue at the end of the night. These four wonderful ladies made an awesome wedding, with awesome clients go even better. Their professionalism was truly unmatched, and their friendliness will surely be remembered.

    I’m sincerely looking forward to my next time DJing at The New Children’s Museum thanks to Erica, Carlie, Mary Lou, and Kendall. Thank you for all of your wonderful help ladies!

    We love NCM!

    We had a very short timeline for flipping the space from museum to reception area, but NCM and their vendors had the process SO dialed-in and efficient. They made it happen!
