I've photographed many times at the Waterworks Museum and absolutely love the space. It is absolutely one of the most unique and beautiful venues in Boston and I love that the income from the weddings supports the museum and preservation of the historic property. I look forward to working here again soon!
The Waterworks Museum is an amazing place for weddings and events. The historical machinery and architecture create an versatile atmosphere that could compliment rustic, modern, steampunk or chic themes easily. Plus their event coordinator is incredible.
