My family has been going to the science museum since I was just a little kid and my now husband and I have been going together for about 3 years so we knew wanted to have our reception there. We had our reception in the Elements Cafe, which is a big open space that overlooks the museum and has a great patio area that looks out to the Mississippi river. During the day it is their cafeteria area for guests, but you could never tell that was the case once it is decorated! We had beautiful draping with lights going across the ceiling, they have a very nice black draping that covers the cafeteria area, and fun mood lighting. Everything was so elegant, the staff are top professionals, and it all flowed together! We loved everything! 100% would recommend for wedding receptions or other events you may host!

My husband and I are both very "sciencey" people (he's a chemist and I'm in medicine) so what better place to have our wedding reception that the Science Museum? We have a lot of children in our extended families, and they thought it was amazing that they were able to bring their kids through the museum before the event began. Weddings can be very long days, so it was great to have this opportunity in between ceremony and reception (we had our ceremony at a church in St. Paul) for people to kick back and have some fun. The food was excellent, they even made us pies instead of cake, and all of the guests were raving about the space (we were in Elements Cafe). Overall, a great venue!

We are so grateful we choose the Science Museum for our wedding reception! We booked the Elements Café and our guests loved the unique venue. The entire team, and especially Kaitlin, were a joy to work with while planning. We sent probably over 100 emails before the big day and Kaitlin was always super helpful and quick to respond every time. Before finding the science museum, we looked at many venues around the metro and found the science museum’s prices to be very reasonable. I really can't recommend them enough. The space is so fun and includes many extra’s like admission to the museum and validated parking and tons of great photo spots – we used the musical stairs for our family photos. The terrace was heavily utilized all night with gorgeous views of the Mississippi. It was an absolutely perfect venue and wonderful experience working with Kaitlin and the entire team.

Thank you to Kaitlin and her team for a beautiful day!! I planned the entire wedding remotely from a different state, and Kaitlin's replies to emails were timely and thorough enough that it was as easy as being there. I wish I could relive the day over and over again- the venue, the coordination and the food were all excellent, and we received compliments galore on all of the above. I went to the Science Museum often as a child, and it was so special to enjoy the best day of my life there with family and friends. Mahalo from Hawaii!!
