Description:

Host your wedding at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, a lovely location full of history and intrigue. The Museum’s origins can be traced back further, to 1879, when the merger of the state’s agricultural and geological collections planted the seed for what would eventually blossom into the largest museum of its kind in the Southeast. Imagine conversing among dinosaurs and mingling amid live animals as you enjoy a special evening at the largest natural science museum in the Southeast. Your guests will enjoy relaxing among the Museum’s spectacular exhibits, which include a dramatic two-story waterfall, a scenic mountain cove, a variety of live animals, fascinating whale skeletons and impressive dinosaurs. With a variety of spaces available at the Museum, you host a wedding for up to 2,300 guests. A gorgeous spot is the second floor Mountains to the Sea. Walk through North Carolina’s natural habitats in this two-story diorama, complete with native plants, live animals and a mountain waterfall. Choose the Special Exhibit Gallery for your gracious reception. This lofty space is rented with the second floor and is the preferred site for many special exhibits. Another stunning reception area is the Acro Cafe. Dine beneath the stars and against the ever-changing backdrop of the Living Conservatory, which is filled with live butterflies and tropical plants.
