The space at the Michener Museum is so gorgeous for a wedding. The staff was so unbelievably kind during the event. Working with Lindsay, their event coordinator, was very easy. She was so professional.

My daughter's wedding
Our wedding at the Michener was absolutely gorgeous! The venue is unique and served as a perfect backdrop for a perfect autumn wedding day. From the cocktail hour in the sculpture garden to the drama of the opening of the Pavillion window blinds, it was truly spectacular! Everyone raved about the delicious food and the overall beauty and elegance. It was unlike any wedding I had ever attended. Lindsay form Catering By Design was wonderful to work with and all of her advice from flowers to DJ were spot on! If you are looking for something a little different and classy...the Michener is the place. We could not have been happier!Sent on 11/11/2018

I want to thank Terri Fair from Catering by Design for her attention to detail and support during the planning of Sarah and Dane's wedding. I was very happy with the organization of the entire process. Food was great, guests were happy. Everything turned out better than expected! Terri handled all of the details seamlessly! The Michener Art Museum was a fabulous venue. The outside courtyard was perfect for the ceremony and cocktail hour. The inside ballroom was beautiful and dramatic when lit up in the evening. At the end of the evening, all of our belongings were packed up and loaded into my car. https://dawenhuangamiomiyaphotograph.shootproof.com/sarah-dane-previewSent on 09/10/2018

Terri was incredibly professional, responsive and knowledgable as our coordinator at Catering by Design. She helped us select menus, determine a sensible run-of-show and even choose linen colors. Terri was wonderful to work with and we'd highly recommend both CBD and the Michener as a venue. The museum space was gorgeous in late Spring, and was perfect for a ceremony/reception at the same site — easy to navigate, beautiful art and expansive spaces, and located near to Doylestown and lots of hotels and B&Bs.Sent on 10/30/2017

When we booked our venue in February 2014, we had no idea how beautiful it would be 2.5 years later. The James A. Michener Museum was everything we could have asked for and more. It was picturesque, clean, and a unique place for us to exchange vows. More than a month later, guests are still talking about the galleries, the sculpture garden, the dramatic reveal of the glass atrium, and (of course) the wall. We would highly recommend The James A. Michener Museum.Sent on 10/30/2016

Our spring wedding at the Michener Museum was stunning!! It was even better than I had imagined! This venue is stunning (especially when the sun is setting), beautiful, and unique. Jeffrey Miller Catering was also pretty easy to work with. The waiters/waitresses/captain/bartenders were all professional and the food was fantastic! Craig was our coordinator who guided us along the process. I loved everything about my wedding here.Sent on 05/22/2014

We had our wedding in the Pavillion at The James Michener Museum in October. The event was exactly what I had dreamed - flawless and stunning. Craig was so amazing to work with - from start to finish I felt at ease with the museum and Jeffrey Miller Catering. The food was more that I could have asked for - fantastic! It was a treat for my guests to have such amazing food.Sent on 01/11/2013
The Pvillion was so beautiful at night and dramatic- so elegant and breathtaking!
Thank you to JAM and Craig!

This venue was an amazing place to have our wedding! The thing that sold my husband on this venue was the pavilion where the reception was held. It has the appearance of an Apple store, modern, clean, and classic. The ceremony was held in their courtyard with a stone wall backdrop. The guests then moved seamlessly to where the cocktail hour was in the sculpture terrace. The museum also lets the guests wander around throughout the night, so guests can enjoy the works of art they carry. There are some minor limitations when it comes to decorations, but since it is a museum by day, it makes sense. It is such a beautiful and modern venue, that it isn't necessary to cover it up anyways! Lastly, the museum works exclusively with Catering By Design. We worked with Terri from CBD and Garnish (their florists) who made the whole process so easy and less stressful knowing that they have everything under control!Sent on 09/19/2017

This venue was beyond our wildest dreams and also within our budget! Our guests could not stop commenting on how interesting and beautiful it was. Our pictures came out gorgeous as a result. The staff was lovely, too. The only tough part was that they required a proof of our wedding invitation so that they could approve the use of the museum's name. Somewhat annoying but not completely unreasonable.Sent on 01/18/2015
A perk of getting married at Michener is that you are also given a free year of membership to the museum. An awesome reason to go back and relive the day, not to mention support an important local arts institution.

Just had my wedding at the Michener in June. SUCH a great venue. It is absolutely beautiful and definitely unique. I loved that there were inside and outdoor places. We wouldn’t have to the same room for our ceremony, cocktail and reception even if it were to pour. Thankfully it didn’t and we had our ceremony and cocktail hour in two different areas of the sculpture garden then the reception in their beautiful reception space – and the whole time our guests were free to roam the museum.Sent on 07/21/2014
Not only was the space beautiful the food was amazing! When we went to our tasting we were impressed with the food but were sure it couldn’t taste that way at the actual wedding when they were cooking for 150 instead of two. To our surprise it was as good if not better. And our coordinator Craig was great – he set up all my DIY stuff correctly and made sure I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. We had a guest trip and hit her head at one point (she was fine!) but Craig responded well and got her the help she needed. I would say the only thing that wasn’t perfect during the whole process was occasionally it took a little while for Craig to respond to e-mails but he did always eventually get back to me and to me it wasn’t a huge deal but I want to be completely honest. It was such a great day – and we had several guests tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

I had my wedding at the Michener Art Museum just last month and I couldn't have asked for a more romantic venue for my big day! Our guests are still talking about the venue, galleries, and food. I used their in-house vendor, Catering by Design, for catering, decor, and florals. They were very easy to work with and were able to execute my vision flawlessly. The food was amazing and the catering staff was a extremely courteous. And receiving a one-year membership to the museum a week after the wedding was a nice touch.Sent on 10/24/2017
The staff's ability to be flexible was limited due to the constraints of the art museum (e.g. no plants are allowed to be walked through the galleries and my wedding party was shushed by museum staff a number of times during photos in the museum galleries). That would be my primary complaint. I would still highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique venue.
