“10/10! We LOVED MCM as a venue, and so many guests complimented that they had the best time. Thank you so much Belmont for all of your help!
June 2018

We could not have been happier with those we worked with (vendors as well as day-of staff). Everyone was awesome and made our day that much easier! A huge thank you to everyone at the museum! It was a pleasure to work with Belmont especially, but also all of the staff we encountered leading up to the day as well as those that worked that day.”
June 2018

“Such a fun venue! Belmont was great to work with and kept us laughing at every meeting. We rented out the 2nd floor and rooftop for ~135 guests. It worked perfect. Many of our guests were from out of town and loved that they could see the capitol at night from the rooftop garden. We received many compliments on how fun our venue was. The giant hamster wheel was a huge success! I also loved that because there is so much to do, and so many activities, that I could keep my table decorations simple.”
August 2018

“Belmont was wonderful to work with, friendly, and communicative. His advice for the venue and wedding planning overall was incredibly helpful!
Our animal handler was great to work with and funny to boot. She always made sure the bride got to see the animals, which was of the utmost importance.”
August 2018

We still have guests making comments that our cocktail hour and reception at the Museum was one of the best experiences they had…and we have the Museum’s staff to thank for that! We are so happy with our experience and highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a fun and unique place to celebrate!”
October 2018

“We were extremely satisfied with everything having to do with our event! We couldn’t have asked for a better evening and the museum staff (especially Belmont!) were incredible! The prices of everything were reasonable and there were no hidden costs. We can’t say enough about the MCM and we will recommend it to anyone who asks us!!

“Thank you for helping us in planning and hosting a wedding reception that was BY FAR, the most fun of any wedding reception I have been to. If anyone asks, we will always recommend the venue 100x out of 100.”
June 2017

“Planning an event from 1000 miles away is daunting. MCM and particularly Belmont made it easy. We had a wonderful and memorable dinner. All – adults as well as children – enjoyed the Museum attractions.”
June 2017

“The groom’s family has an ethic/religious background that we wanted to accommodate. We were very appreciative that the MCM staff was willing to make that happen by allowing shared catering. They made them feel very welcome!
July 2017

This was the perfect setting for my mom’s 70th surprise birthday party. Belmont went out of his way to make sure it stayed a surprise, seeing to each detail leading up to her walking through the door. Belmont does his job well. He communicated so well with my dad and me (we were planning the event) and went out of his way to make it special.  He enjoys his job and it shows!
August 2017


It was such a wonderful setting and the staff was very accommodating. What we loved the most was the unique, multi floor setting, and the rooftop. THANK YOU!”
May 2016

“We loved it so much, we’re already planning our ten year wedding anniversary party at MCM! Our friends said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, and even if there hadn’t been a wedding, it was just a great time. Thank you all so much!”
September 2016


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!
August 2015 

“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!”
September 2015

“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!
July 2015

“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.”
June 2015

“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!”
June 2015

“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.”
May 2015


Awesome place for a wedding reception. Staff was friendly and all guests had a good time.”
December 2014

“…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.
July 2014


“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.”
June 2013

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.”
May 2013

So many people have told me it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to!”
