Madison Children’s Museum Wedding Testimonials
Hear what our guests have to say!
My husband and I wanted to show off Madison to our out-of-town family and friends, and the museum was an obvious choice. We held our rehearsal on the second floor – our guests loved being able to play in the exhibits! Then, we took everyone to the Rooftop for an intimate brunch buffet. The beautiful views and sunset, plus an organized and accommodating staff made it an all-too-perfect night!
“My husband and I did not want to have a ballroom/dance floor focused evening and MCM provided AMAZING alternative entertainment. Additionally the staff at MCM was wonderful to work with. In particular, Sarah Davidson was great – always responsive and very organized. We were also happy to know that what we paidd to reserve the venue and in service charges goes back to support the mission of the Madison Children’s Museum, a wonderful asset to our local community!”
“Oh my gosh. This venue MADE our reception. Our friends tell us months later how much fun they had at our reception, and others have said that we’ve set the bar for future weddings. My husband and I are laid back to a fault, and this venue perfectly fit our “chill but fun” vibe that we were going for. We had our ceremony at the court house, so we had drinks and snacks on the roof followed by a sit-down dinner in the Art Studio. All we had to provide were centerpieces!”
“We chose to have a short, standing ceremony on the rooftop with limited seating for guests who needed it, followed by a standing reception on the second level. Working with Sarah, the event coordinator, was a dream. She was attentive, informative, and an all around superstar. The guests had so much fun! We got a ton of compliments on how unique and memorable our wedding was. Both the adults and children enjoyed themselves, and we couldn’t have had a better evening.”
“We booked the museum for our ceremony and reception because we wanted a unique space that was downtown… we had our ceremony in the Rooftop garden and it was absolutely gorgeous with all the sunflowers and plants up there. Then our reception was on the second floor in the Art Studio. Our guests were free to explore the museum and we received many compliments during the evening. Everyone had a blast!
“We had any absolutely wonderful wedding and wanted to reach out to say thanks for everything you and the museum team did to help make it happen! Especially the last minute change to the inside-plan for the ceremony. It was beautifully done… your folks really went with the flow, even when wrinkles came up.”
“You and your staff were all so wonderful and helpful. All of our guests loved the Rooftop, it is truly a magical place to be and get married. The children’s museum will hold a special place in our hearts forever!”
“I had my rehearsal/ welcome dinner (out of town guests and wedding party) at MCM. An outstanding location, unique, accommodating and a great place to bring out of town guests.”
“Awesome place for a wedding reception. Staff was friendly and all guests had a good time.”
“…my husband and I were interested in doing something unique. The Madison Children’s Museum was the perfect option for us! It is a beautiful space and has built-in entertainment since your guests can access all the museum exhibits.”
“Several guests have told us that our wedding was fantastic, and family members who don’t often attend or stay very long at celebrations stayed the whole night. Staff was also very friendly, and Sarah B. (their events coordinator) was a pleasure to work with.”
“The rooftop was an amazing setting for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests loved exploring the museum and the concourse was a great spot for dancing.”
“It is a truly unique venue in Madison, and it offers a fun, playful environment that we were seeking for our wedding reception…the staff both prior to and day of the event were uniformly friendly and helpful.”
“So many people have told me it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to!”
