Book with Molly, she is great! The team at WSHS, regardless if they are events, support services, curatorial, or education are top notch! I have worked with the different departments of WSHS in the past on various occasions and at each time my service and experience was second to none.Sent on 06/29/2016

This is the most excellent venue for your wedding. The museum staff went out of their way to make sure my daughter's wedding was everything she wanted it to be. They were supportive, creative, sensitive, and by the time the day came we felt like they were part of our family! I can't say enough about the excellent quality of service they provided from our first visit (and all of the visits we made over the months leading up to the wedding to measure, chat, and seek advice) all the way through the rehearsal, set up, the ceremony and reception, and the final take down. They are the best! It was a beautiful, remarkable experience and the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you to the best wedding venue we could have hoped for!Sent on 05/23/2016
