For a unique and memorable venue, host your net event at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center. The picturesque 118-ace site as the former estate of New York City department store mogul Henri Bendel. The historic Bendel Mansion (main building) is full of charm and architectural detail, and is the perfect one-of-a-kind setting for a wedding, birthday celebration, company outing or holiday party. We can tailor your event to suit your needs. Out Great Hall and Bendel Gallery can accommodate large groups, while the solarium offers a more intimate setting for your special day. Conveniently located three-quarters of a mile from the Merrit Parkway, the Stamford Museum and Nature Center site also includes a working farm, universally accessible woodland trails with picnic area, playground, observatory, interactive art galleries, and a planetarium. Most of these areas can be integrated into your special event.
The location was so gorgeous! We did the ceremony outdoors by the lake. And then a cocktail hour on the lawn in front of Bendel Mansion, amidst the beautiful sculpture collection. And finally, the dinner reception indoors. Our guests enjoyed visiting the otters & other animals, and also fell in love with the place.
