Connecticut River Museum Overview

Enjoy your event at the historic Connecticut River Museum! A phenomenal waterfront setting for your special day. Combining dramatic river views with lovely facilities, this venue provides a truly gorgeous backdrop for a nautical, rustic or a very refined gathering. Imagine saying your vows on the River Front Lawn, followed by your tented reception as your guests take in a beautiful sunset, while sailboats drift by. To feel river breezes while watching the moonlight dance on the river is simply breathtaking. The Boathouse Room and North Deck are ideal for an intimate gathering, cocktail hour or unique wedding photography session. If you have a flair for the dramatic, consider an arrival to your event by boat. The Connecticut River Museum Event Coordinator is always happy to assist you to ensure your celebration is the way you envision it.
