Description

The Frontier Culture Museum, with its charming history and architecture, is a beautiful place for your wedding ceremony and reception. From rustic to contemporary, cozy to spacious, the museum’s space options are perfect for wedding celebrations. The Lee S. Cochran Pavilion is a very special setting with easy access and a beautiful panoramic view overlooking the Museum and Valley beyond—the ideal backdrop for a romantic ceremony and reception. The open-air pavilion has space to expand and is equipped with drop-down tent sides, setting the stage for a truly memorable wedding. The Octagonal Barn is a unique, eight-sided, 1908 two-story barn with modern conveniences and an elegant, rustic feel. Imagine gauzy white fabric billowing down from the center of the roof over your friends and family eating, drinking, and dancing at your barn reception. The romance and intimacy of the space, combined with the history and rustic feel, are truly unparalleled. Regardless of where on the property your wedding is held, the Frontier Culture Museum is the perfect place for your romantic and charming ceremony and reception.
