Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Perched atop Red Mountain with spectacular views of the city, this park/museum venue celebrates the history of Birmingham and its metalworking industries (the impressive Vulcan towering above the grounds is the world’s largest cast iron statue).
  • Both indoor and outdoor event spaces are available for your ceremony and reception. The City Overlook offers splendid vistas of the downtown skyline and the mountainside, and the Electra Event Room has floor-to-ceiling windows along with topnotch AV capabilities and tables and chairs configured to your needs.
  • Thoughtful wedding package amenities include guest access to the museum and observation tower, a designated day-of event professional, and a select group of experienced caterers to choose from.
