"My clients love that the space feels very 'Richmond' and is nestled in the heart of the city and close to hotels, restaurants and bars for the after-party. The Museum team treats each wedding with care and respect and serves as a wonderful planning partner to ensure the couple has a seamless experience."

Christine Haines Greenberg, Hive Wedding Collective

"Our coordinator was so prompt in answering any questions we had, allowed us to visit the museum 10000x, was so flexible as we navigated COVID wedding planning, and made sure our wedding went so smoothly. We couldn't have gotten luckier with a better event coordinator. The Museum made our wedding day special, and we appreciate that so much."
