We couldnt of picked a more beautiful place for our reception site. We had an evening reception outside below Vulcan. Our guests danced and enjoyed the night looking out at the Downtown Birmingham city scape. Your rental of the venue comes with access for your guests to take their glass of wine and tour the museum as well as taking the elevator to the top of Vulcan and to look over the reception. It was breathe taking and couldn't have been any better!Sent on 02/02/2012

One of the best views in the city and a unique venue. We had our rehearsal dinner here and everyone enjoyed themselves. There is a list of vendors for catering to choose from and they pretty much let you decorate however you want- candles do have to be covered. There is indoor and outdoor space, your guests have access to the grounds, event room, statue, museum. AV equipment includes speaker system, screen and projector. Clarence was a pleasure to work with, inviting and knowledgeable. He was willing to do whatever he could to make things easy and a success.Sent on 03/19/2016
