Beautiful, historic venue that we and our guests loved, and they were very flexible with last-minute adjustments.
As others have said, however, it's a bit frustrating trying to work around the "green" restrictions (no paper, staples, sand, glitter, etc.), so I would suggest hiring a planner to help with this, if you can afford it (or designate a family member to do it). Also, we were a bit annoyed with the cost of a couple of things (a refillable water pitcher for $45 is ridiculous, IMO), but that's more of a critique of the wedding industry/capitalism in general. Overall, it was a great experience.

We LOVED our venue. Like many reviews had said when we were searching, the Museum has quite a few rules, time restrictions and less than convenient fees to add and consider, at times, it was hard to keep it all straight. That being said, by the time we had our pre-event meeting, we had all our questions answered, and we knew we'd be getting a great reception! The place speaks for itself, it is stunning, unique and beautiful all on it's own. Our guests commented on what a great venue it was, and that the bartender as well as helpful staff member were very friendly and we agreed. We had a rockin' dance, and only wished that beam in the middle of the dance floor wasn't there so the whole crowd could circle around and not split up. People could come and go all night in and out to the garden, and it made for amazing photos and memories. GREAT PLACE to CELEBRATE!

MoVM was super easy to work with and provided us with a wonderful venue for our wedding reception. The natural decor of the building helped to keep our decorating costs low! Everything was perfect for our big day and we had an incredibly party!

The Museum of Visual Materials was the most beautiful place in Sioux Falls that I could ever imagine having a wedding. We traveled from out of town to have our ceremony & reception here and did not want to bring lots of decorations with us, the natural beauty of this place was decoration enough for our Sunday morning brunch wedding.
The staff at MoVM was incredibly accommodating to our needs and quick to respond. They gave us special pricing for having a Sunday wedding and a Saturday rehearsal which was much appreciated.
We loved having our wedding here and the transition from the ceremony to the reception set-up was very easy as we had about 100 guests.

Beautiful building to have a reception. Everyone was great to work with however, the manager we had on duty seemed annoyed to be there. Besides that everything was great!

Simply beautiful venue for our wedding.. Just remember this is a "green" facility.. Everything ran smoothly.. Hard to decorate the day before as the venue fills up on Fridays for weddings now .. Highly recommended to any couple looking for a venue.

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.
