Best DC Art Gallery Wedding Venues

Best DC Art Gallery Wedding Venues

Finding the perfect venue for your wedding day is difficult in the Washington DC area, so many museums, historic homes, restaurants, and churches to consider. 

The National Museum of Women in the Arts is the only museum dedicated to supporting the cause of women in the arts. It addresses such issues as social change and gender imbalance that is prevalent in the art world. Bringing light to current women artists and those of the past, it seeks to represent and recognize their achievements.  

After hours, the museum is spacious enough to accommodate a large guest list like a hotel conference room, but also boasts a dramatic double staircase, a mezzanine level full of works of art, grand chandeliers, and so much more. Minimal decorating is needed for this space. The art of women, past and present, is displayed all around the space for your guests to enjoy. Your guests will not only enjoy celebrating with you, but be exposed to amazing works in all mediums. 

In addition to the Great Hall and Mezzanine, the upper gallery areas are available for smaller events or your cocktail hour while the attentive staff flips your space from the ceremony to reception. Add in some decorative uplighting, pipe and drape, or even rent some furniture for a few sitting areas for your guests to relax from dancing the night away. 

The museum is walking distance to the new City Center with upscale hotels, fine dining, and luxury shopping. Gucci, David Yurman, Momofuku CCDC, Milk Bar, and Renaissance, the Grand Hyatt and Marriott Marquis are close by. 

Location: 1250 New York Ave NW, Washington, DC 20005.
