WEDDINGS

Your special day deserves a unique venue. With our world class American Art collection and the historic Walnut Hill Park as a backdrop, the NBMAA provides flexibility and elegance for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, family reunion, or other special gathering. We invite all couples to consider hosting their celebration in one of our stunning indoor or outdoor event spaces, including the beautifully renovated Sylvia Bonney Halcyon Lounge (inside the 1909 Landers House), the Stanley Works Center, the Pritchard Family Terrace, and the picturesque Museum grounds.
