Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Award-winning architecture, sparkling views, and world-class art make this a winner. With a variety of spaces that can be combined or used individually, you can customize your event and incorporate the exhibits as unique backdrops.
  • Exchange vows in the elegant, light-flooded Atrium, or process down the airy, central staircase to your ceremony in the Lobby. This contemporary, architecturally stunning space is also perfect for a spectacular reception; for more intimate events, there are plenty of smaller (but equally chic) spaces.
  • Make a splash—arrive at the marina by boat, then take a short walk to the venue over the Bridge of Glass. For landlubbers, the museum's convenient downtown location offers plenty of other transportation options, including Amtrak and light rail.
