3 The Heritage Museum & Cultural Center Reviews
Married on 10/11/2014
Beautiful, classic venue allowing for upscale reception, needing little to no additional decorations. A year later, family and friends are still talking about the character of the venue. It is ... Read more reasonably prices, and letting us select our own caterer and provide our own alcohol, was very cost effective. Highly recommend this venue to any and all friends getting married.

Amy and her event staff were amazing to work with. She did absolutely everything she could to ensure that our day went smoothe and as stress free as possible. We didn't have our ceremony there, but ... Read more since it was set for outdoors, the Heritage Center was prepared to be a back up option should the weather not cooperate. The recreation hall is a beautiful canvas to create your vision. I couldn't be more happy!

Let me start by saying, the venue itself is beautiful. There was little need to bring in much decor because the space has a lot to offer, including dramatic chandlers, wood flooring, bright natural ... Read more lighting and a balcony. It is also very functional as we were able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in the same building. Unfortunately this is where my positive comments end. My experience with, Tammy, their events coordinator was the worst professional encounter I have ever had. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS IN BLACK AND WHITE before signing a contract. When we booked Heritage, they had a different event coordinator (Amy) who was very accommodating. Fast forward to a few months before our wedding, Tammy and I were going over a few details when she told me that the extra hour (that we had paid $500 for) was not in our contract and that If I wanted it I would have to pay the $500 again! I spent no less than 3 hours with her over the course of 2 days fighting my case. We even pulled out old emails between Amy and myself stating very clearly that she had given us the hour for the price stated in the contract. And, still, they were going to make me pay for it again. She tried blaming liquor laws, and saying it was out of her control and at one point asked me, "why are you punishing me for something Amy said?" She was over all very unprofessional, making snide remarks and using sarcasm. It was awful. When all was said and done, she finally yelled at me to "just tell her what I want and she would give it to me." This added a lot of stress to an already stressful time. They will also nickle and dime you for your security deposit, so be ready to count it as money spent. Although I loved the venue, I would never host another event here nor do I recommend Heritage to anyone wishing to have hassle free planning.
