    Perfect Venue

    The agricultural & industrial museum was the PERFECT place for our wedding. The guests were able to look at all of the exhibits while we took family pictures and couple pictures. Plenty of space for the tables and the dancing. Rental coordinator was amazing to work with and the staff was friendly every time we stopped in to plan!

    Fantastic!

    The museum is a beautiful venue and Brodi was the single most helpful person we worked with when planning our wedding. We used the museum for both our ceremony (in the courtyard) and reception (cocktails and dancing in the lobby, dinner in the Hall of Giants).

    Working with Brodi was so easy: she is responsive, helpful, and attentive; it really felt like she went the extra mile to help use during planning. The museum staff was professional and courteous.

    The courtyard is beautiful and the flowering trees were an unexpected bonus for us. The exhibits can remain open during your event, allowing guests to wander at their leisure. There was plenty of space, and nothing felt too crowded.

    We got a tremendous value using this venue. Similar venues are often double the price, and do not have the flexibility that was provided here.

    Wonderful venues for weddings. Jeff and I had our wedding reception at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum and it was so lovely and magical. We have also played wedding music at this beautiful museum and attended other weddings and functions at the other museums, and it truly is a unique and beautiful option for a wedding ceremony and/or reception.
