    Unique wedding venue with amazing price

    We only looked at two venues and stopped after finding the musuem. The price you literally can not beat for everything you get with it. We had a small intimate wedding of about 53 people and everyone came up to me at the end of the night raving about the location. They loved being able to explore the museum throughout the night. Half way through the wedding process we got a new event coordinator and there were a few times were there was miscommunication but overall it was a good experience. The courtyard with the trees and lighting was perfect for our ceremony and the exposed brick looked amazing in pictures. The lobby was the perfect size for reception and you dont have to do much to it because it's already so pretty inside.

    Unique venue, great value

    The York Agricultural & Industrial Museum is the only venue we looked at when finding a location for our wedding! We instantly loved the unique location, the flexibility of the spaces, the museum for guests to explore, and the incredible value. Brodi, the event coordinator, was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, from picking other vendors to deciding on layout and everything in between. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour in the Lobby and our reception in the Hall of Giants. We had about 110 guests and there was the perfect amount of space. We were told by many of our guests that this was the coolest place they had ever gone for a wedding!

    LOVED IT! Can't say enough good things

    We got married at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum on 09/15/18. Brodi and the staff were great from the start. Our guests loved having the museum to walk thru the entire event, and the price point was perfect.

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.
