Weddings and Celebrations

Perhaps more than any other occasion, weddings are a reflection of personality, and every couple makes choices that are uniquely their own. Offering a matchless riverfront location and the vitality of a contemporary science center, the Museum presents a complete range of options for any bride and groom. An inspired setting is essential, and couples may choose from an array of unique indoor venues (the main Exhibit Halls and Skyline Room are most popular), or opt for the open-air Washburn Pavilion with its proximity to water and sky.

The Setting

Without doubt, the Museum is a one-of-a-kind setting — full of creative possibilities and well able to accommodate the fresh and the unusual. If you'd like the elegance of traditional décor accented by the picturesque backdrop of a sparkling river or a blushing twilight, we can provide it. If you'd like the fun and whimsy of a theme that reflects your individuality, we can provide it. If you'd like a combination of both, we can provide it!

Wedding Coordinator

Key to the success of your event is the Museum wedding coordinator. Offering expertise, support, and advice, the wedding coordinator consults with you on every detail, helping you sort through the Museum's myriad options and making recommendations as needed, whether it be determining the ideal venue for your celebration, choosing table linens, or selecting the perfect vendor based on our extensive experience with local florists, photographers, and entertainers.

Custom Reception

Our particular specialty is the custom reception. Partnering with Wolfgang Puck Catering, we combine a flair for quality and sophistication with the ability to carry out the fanciful touches and unique details that make a celebration yours.
