The Cradle of Aviation Museum

Long Island



The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Long Island provides a one-of-a-kind venue for your special day. If you’re looking for something different and interesting to set your wedding apart from all the rest, then give this space a second look! Give your guests something to talk about during cocktail hour by allowing them to tour through the Museum’s many aviation exhibits or air hangars with drinks and amuse-buches in hand. Continue your celebration in the Grand Atrium, where you can wine and dine beneath towering four-story glass ceilings that are adorned with authentic vintage aircraft. Of course, you and your guests aren’t just confined to the dance floor! When you need a little change of scenery, meander along one the space’s three multi-level balconies and examine the awe-inspiring flight displays. The Atrium’s aerodynamic architecture, grand size, and uniquely displayed aviation wonders make it one of the most memorable venues on Long Island.
