The museum was a wonderful place to have my daughter's wedding. The view and the ballroom was elegant and grand. I will always remember that wonderful day.

The Indiana State Museum provides an incredible space for a reception, and my husband and I could not be more thrilled with the way our reception went! The space itself is beautiful and does not need ... Read more much work, but the event planning stuff, catering staff (Kahns), and all others involved in the setup, execution, and tear down of the event were incredible. All individuals we worked with were incredibly helpful and nice and truly made our day special. We also took advantage of the museum for pictures before the ceremony, and all the volunteers and staff at the museum during the day were exceptional when we were walking around taking pictures! Highly recommend this space to anyone thinking about having a wedding or reception downtown Indianapolis!
