Easy - creative space
After meeting with Laura and discovering the variety of options in how we can fill the space, we are very excited to host our wedding reception here. Great location within city limits and proximity to our ceremony venue at a different location downtown...not to mention the given connections to other vendors. Looking forward to pulling all the threads together!Sent on 01/06/2019

Elegant and Classy!
This venue is everything we didn't know we were looking for. Laura at the museum is so nice and from the first encounter with her at the venue showing, she gave us all of the info we needed, asked all of our questions and showed each space available for rent. We ended up booking shortly after that and are so excited for our October wedding! The space is so elegant, sophisticated and spacious! We are counting down the days :)Sent on 06/23/2019

Loved using the VAHS for our wedding reception. The open area by the gift shop was great for cocktail hour and inside the hall was spacious enough to accommodate all of our guests. They were super nice to work with and overall I loved it! Lighting and chair rentals are a must though! They really transformed the space.Sent on 07/28/2014
