Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • From the stylish Beaux Arts exterior of the Freeport-McMoRan Great Hall to the grand staircase in the McDermott Lobby, this gorgeous museum offers a backdrop that is as much a work of art as the timeless masterpieces it holds.
  • Filled with oaks covered in Spanish moss, lagoons, bridges, and mature pines, the five-acre Besthoff Sculpture Garden adjacent to the museum provides a lovely outdoor ceremony location accented with dozens of 20th- and 21st-century sculptures.
  • Guests can meander through five gallery spaces, which feature Italian, Dutch, and Flemish Old Master paintings that are hundreds of years old. For outdoor mingling, you can also add on the breezy Freeman and Booth-Bricker courtyards.
