Use the historic train ramp to make your grand entrance.

Located on the western side of the Museum, the Garner Pavilion hosts a scenic outdoor setting among the historic train canopies at Broad Street Station.

Your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception can all happen in the same space surrounded by Richmond's history. Antique trains, the original Earth Kugel and the Aluminaut (world's first aluminum submarine) surround the open area.
