Absolutely loved this venue! The staff was incredibly helpful the months before our wedding and the day of. The venue itself is beautiful and doesn't require many decorations because of it's simplistic beauty! I would definitely recommend this venue for those looking for an intimate and gorgeous venue!

Our wedding reception turned out beautiful! But, planning here was awful. They're super eco-friendly, which makes the cost go way up, especially if you go with a caterer who does not provide their own (non-paper) plates and (non-plastic) silverware. We had to come up with all of that + cups, plates for cake & desserts, etc. You can't use tape or glue or staples in decorating, no open flame (has to be covered 2 in. above flame), bartender has to be there anytime a bar service is being used and the bar license fee is $100 and the bartender fee is $25 and hour for a minimum of 3 hours. That's just some of it. It is a beautiful place, but I highly recommend you thoroughly check into all of the can-not-dos prior to renting and be sure you are okay with all of the venue's restrictions. I can't really say I would have not had it here or totally do not recommend it because it all depends on you and what you're okay with. The outcome is a gorgeous place, but the venue's restrictions and rules can make planning very stressful.

Jeremy at the MOVM was very helpful and easy to work with. It was great to be able to pick whatever vendors we wanted. The venue itself is very unique and beautiful, which is nice becaue you don't have to decorate a lot. Our guests enjoyed the being able to mingle in the outdoor area also, and it was a great location within walking distance to downtown bars and hotels. I would definitely recommend the MOVM for any event!

A beautiful location! One of the very few in town where you can choose your own vendors. Jeremy was very easy to work with and the night went smoother than I could have ever imagined. The whole staff was friendly and provided excellent service to our guests.

This is such a beautiful facility! The staff was accommodating and friendly. There were a few miscommunications, but they were mostly my fault and quickly resolved. We heard so many wonderful comments from the guests on the facility. Everyone was pleased.

My husband and I chose to have our reception here but we got married at my church. We thought this would be a good place to have our reception and they helped us out with decorating. It looked awesome with the LED and Icicle lights on in the museum along with our up-lighting color from our DJ. There was enough room to dance on the dance floor which was a PLUS!! Our guests loved the museum! We are so happy that we had our reception at the museum! I would recommend them to others. The prices are reasonable.

The venue is beautiful. They are very accomodating and easy to work with. I made changes the week before the wedding and they made those changes easy to make. There were a few lapses in communication during the planning process but I attribue those to turnover in the position of the person handling the event. They were easily taken care of.

During the event, the staff was helpful and willing to wait on us and please us in any way possible. It made my evening stress free and allowed me to relax and have fun at my own wedding.
