An extraordinary milestone in your life requires an equally extraordinary setting like Memorial Art Gallery. Noted as Rochester’s landmark art museum, Memorial Art Gallery is the perfect venue for your wedding and reception. Whether you’re planning an intimate gathering or an elegant formal affair, the historic rooms can accommodate both large and small groups. Often called the most beautiful room in the city, the Fountain Court was built in 1926 as part of the Memorial Art Gallery’s first expansion. Today, the Fountain Court houses Renaissance and Baroque masterworks including the only full-size Italian Baroque organ in North America. Feast on dining options created by Max Rochester and dance with your guests underneath the dramatic architecture. Located at an accessible one mile from downtown in the Neighborhood of the Arts, Memorial Art Gallery weddings also include one hour of private gallery viewing for your guests.
