A favorite date location for us, the Nature Museum was a great place to host our wedding! They helped us to coordinate with the zoo to set up parking, their fee allowed us to use their bridal suite, terrace, indoor terrace room, solarium area, and courtyard, and covered admission for all 280 guests to the ceremony.

The setting is picturesque, with the perfect blend of urban views and natural sanctuary. It made for beautiful pictures and allowed our guests to feel comfortable and special as a part of our event.

The event coordinators here are very easy to work with, flexible, and helpful. They try to accommodate the picture of the event that you paint. They were also very welcoming each time that we needed to visit to think out our plans and layout of the day, allowing us to bring in our families and wedding party to get them acquainted with the spaces that we'd be using, and the same went for setting up our wedding rehearsal.

Unfortunately, because this is a museum, there are some taxes and codes that cause caterers to have to pay certain premiums to host meals there (for insurance and other reasons), their prices here (and in other museum locations) were more elevated than their prices elsewhere. The numbers at the Nature Museum (with such a large number of guests) were really just beyond our budget, so we hosted our reception at another location with an independent caterer. However, we have seen a few receptions here (up close and from afar) and they all look very beautiful, romantic, and elegant. If you have less guests or a larger margin for catering in your budget, this is totally worth looking into.

Great place to have a wedding. Guests can tour the exhibits for the first hour of the reception. Be sure you ask them what the temperature of the museum will be. It was a little warm for our wedding.
