We had our wedding and reception here and it was PERFECT, FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL. My husband and I could not have been happier. Emmie was amazing! The museum was the perfect atmosphere and totally unique. The photos are amazing.

If you want a venue completely unique and unforgettable choose this one. The entire staff was professional and right on time with everything. They made our day flow with such ease. We had very little for decorations at our reception (the entire first floor of the museum, lovely setting) was all the decoration we needed. and of course, the grand staircase for our entrance and the carousel!
Our guests are still talking about the wonderful reception.

Absolutely wonderful experience with this venue. We had already chosen our ceremony and reception location, but when we saw the museum, we knew we had to do something here as well. So we planned our rehearsal dinner/welcome party here the night before our wedding. People are still talking about how amazing it was! The carousel was something I had dreamed about having at my wedding, so I was beyond thrilled the had one! The kids loved it and rode it for hours, leaving the adults free to drink and have fun- though the grownups had fun on the carousel too! I could go on and on, but especially for the money, this place was an over the top experience for our guests and we are so happy we included it in our weekend.
Emmie is amazing, very responsive, and coordinated and took care of everything, from the floor plan to the decorating, handing out drink tickets, clean up, etc etc etc. Just amazing from beginning to end.

The GRPM was such a beautiful and unique venue for our wedding! The carousel made for such a fun activity for all of our guests. We had plenty of space for our appetizers, 2 bars, cupcake table and 2 buffet tables for our 200+ guests. The event coordinator there is fantastic. She was very responsive with communication and had a sample floor plan for us to edit appropriately. Overall, a wonderful venue and I would recommend anyone to host an event there!

The museum is THE best place to host a reception. We strayed from a traditional sit down reception and decided to go with a strolling dinner, providing more time for our guests to dance and mingle. Emmie and her team were phenomenal. As a little girl I always dreamed of having my reception here, the museum means so much to me. The venue is a bit pricey but only because alcohol is included in the pricing. The perks of having a reception here are endless. There is a team of amazing professionals that help you along each part of the way and the staff is more than kind. The carousel is open and the exhibits on the first floor are illuminated and can even be open for the evening. The museum was a dream come true. I only regret not making the reception last for 5 more hours.

I would love to have my reception at the grand rapids museum but it is pricy and you can't start your reception until after the museum closes at 6pm. They do offer specials in the winter though. They have a really unique carosel as well. I have seen pictures of weddings there and it is beautiful.
