On September 12, 2015, we hosted our daughter's wedding at the Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM). What a beautiful venue: the Elements reception area has floor to ceiling glass windows (which showcased a gorgeous view of the sunset), a large patio with a panoramic view of the river, a floor plan that accommodated both a cocktail reception area (overlooking dinosaurs) as well as a large seating area for dinner with several options for decorating (lighting, chair covers, napkins, etc.). Other key features include free, covered parking, passes to the museum on the day of the wedding (if guests need something to do between the wedding and the reception, this is a built-in option) and is conveniently located downtown St. Paul with several hotel options in the immediate vicinity. We viewed several other reception locations but found SMM to be the most enticing.
Not only is the space beautiful but the food and service were top notch. Several guests came up to us the night of the reception and commented on how good the food was. Working with Kaitlin Keller, Catering Sales Manager from Lancer Catering and Jennifer Ernst George, SMM Facility Sales and Event Specialist made our lives easier as they helped us navigate through the planning process. They were knowledgeable and very responsive. I would highly recommend this venue.

My husband and I are both very "sciencey" people (he's a chemist and I'm in medicine) so what better place to have our wedding reception that the Science Museum? We have a lot of children in our extended families, and they thought it was amazing that they were able to bring their kids through the museum before the event began. Weddings can be very long days, so it was great to have this opportunity in between ceremony and reception (we had our ceremony at a church in St. Paul) for people to kick back and have some fun. The food was excellent, they even made us pies instead of cake, and all of the guests were raving about the space (we were in Elements Cafe). Overall, a great venue!

I had a great experience working with Kim at the Science Museum. My work schedule is restrictive and she was very accommodating in working with me via email to minimize this disruption. My only complaint is that my cake topper was lost at the end of the night. While it's a minor point, I wish that the museum did not put the topper out on a table "in public" because I suspect it was swiped or broken by one of our guests before we could put it in a box to take home with us; it's a sentimental piece and I'm disappointed it was lost. All in all, though, it was a great venue, and I'm happy we chose it!
