Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Al fresco events are charming in the Dreyfuss Memorial Garden, a parklike space filled with stone sculptures and pebbled walkways that’s well suited for everything from exchanging vows to sipping cocktails.
  • Guests will be wowed from their first step inside the brightly painted Welcome Center, where plenty of natural light illuminates a brilliant wall-to-wall overhead mural by acclaimed artist Odili Donald Odita.
  • For dinner and dancing we recommend the classic Engelhard Court room, with its marble floors, recessed archways, and access to the museum galleries, which your guests can tour during your cocktail hour.
