The venue was great but we had some issues with communication. I thought someone was going to call me 2 weeks before so I could order the right linens but no one did so I got white ones. It was told to me that they would be contacting me but it never happened. I also was charged for a spill that was immediately cleaned up. Also I was charged for vendors not doing what they were supposed to do. The staff there that night was really helpful but I never saw the person that I initially talked to.

I just had my reception with MOWT and it was more than I could have ever asked for. They go over the table arrangement you want and have it all set up for you when you get there to decorate. They were so helpful and so easy to work with. The price is amazing for what you get. There are only bathrooms on the second floor and the reception area is on the third floor. That was the only downside, but other than that we LOVED it.

I had my wedding reception at The Museum of World Treasures. Kelsey, the event coordinator was so wonderful to work with. The rest of the staff is great too! I highly recommend using the museum for any event. They have a great space and guests are allowed access to the rest of museum. My husband, guests and I had an amazing night. I am so happy I chose to have my reception at the museum! It is such a beautiful and unique place to host any event and your guests will love it too!

The Museum venue was a good choice for our daughter's wedding reception. The location is centrally located, and parking was ample. Our guests enjoyed the opportunity to check out the museum while waiting for the wedding party to arrive. Many or the guests were very impressed. A few disappointments include:
--no hard-surface dance floor
--no sink or water source in the kitchen area for cleanup
--no bathrooms on the banquet room floor
--Withheld more than usual from our deposit for carpet cleaning and other things that should be considered normal wear and tear.

The space was beautiful & unique in the heart of Old Town. We really enjoyed working with their operations manager, Kelsey. She gave us lots of great ideas both to work with the space and to handle some of our special needs. Our ceremony turned out exactly as I imagined and it was wonderful to let our guests explore the museum afterward. I'm so glad I found this venue.

The museum was the perfect location for our reception. The guest enjoyed the museum while waiting for us to finish with pictures. The staff was friendly and helped with all of our needs. The recently renovated the banquet room and the new color scheme (grey) made our decorations (red and black) look even more formal and romantic.

Pros: Easy to communicate with museum staff. Quick return of deposit after the event. Setup/Tear Down included in price for tables and table cloths. Easy access to elevator. Interesting location with museum access for guests. Very Low Rates!
Cons: No sink near the reception area. Only bathroom on second floor. Privacy could be an issue.

Our experience of hosting our wedding reception at the Museum of World Treasures was great. We like supporting local and unique spots and the location was perfect for our guests to spend some time in the heart of Old Town. Lots of free parking and a huge playroom for the kids made this an easy choice. Very budget friendly!
