With a magnificent marble interior and dazzling chandeliers, the National Museum of Women in the Arts offers an elegant setting for celebrations both large and small.

Weddings at the NMWA are a jaw-dropping affair with enough room for up to 450 guests for a seated dinner. A ceremony can accommodate 280 to 300 guests. Want to have a smaller wedding? No problem! The museum’s Great Hall and Mezzanine are the perfect space for wedding, no matter the guest list. The Third Floor Gallery is also available to rent for cocktail hour, allowing for the perfect event flow from ceremony to cocktail hour, to dinner and dancing!

Whether you are celebrating a wedding, a Mitzvah, a milestone birthday, or retirement, the museum’s event staff will happily advise you on how best to use our historic and versatile space. Highly trained and experienced event professionals are at your fingertips through our Special Events office to make your occasion unforgettable.
