  • My husband and I were married in March at the Penn Museum. I had gone to the Penn Museum a number of times on school trips and always thought the building was incredible. We visited a number of venues when we first got engaged and were so impressed with the space at the Penn Museum and with the professionalism of the staff. Atiya was incredible and answered all of our questions promptly and comprehensively as we were making our decision. It wasn't hard to choose the museum, and there was never a moment that we regretted our decision. Working with Michelle and CxRA was such a wonderful experience. She was exceptionally accommodating in helping us put together a day that fit our needs, budget, and guests. All of the food, especially the spiced salmon (so amazing!), was delicious. We just loved working with Michelle and Atiya. Needless to say, the wedding day was one of the best day of our lives. After the wedding, a number of guests told us that it was the absolute coolest wedding ve... Read more

  • Atiya (from Penn Museum) and Jamie (from the exclusive caterer Restaurant Associates) were an outstanding team that provided a flawless and first class experience. They were in constant contact throughout the pre-wedding process with reminders and advice. Penn Museum was an absolutely stunning and elegant venue that had options in terms of locations on the museum grounds (it was nice to have an indoor backup option in case of weather). Restaurant Associates provided a variety of choices in terms of food and beverages, and they were all outstanding. It will certainly be a wedding experience we wont forget and would not do any differently, in part because of Atiya and Jamie.

  • The Penn Museum staff and catering team were amazing and our wedding turned out better than we could ever imagine. The museum's indoor and outdoor spaces are beautiful and give you flexibility to customize your event. The food is truly restaurant quality - our guests raved about this for days after the wedding. Our museum and catering coordinators (Hladini and Jamie, the best!) were very responsive and anticipated our needs. Could not have asked for a better day! I would also suggest using the recommended vendors as they are familiar with the unique spaces, lighting/sound needs, and design elements.

  • We had so much fun hosting our wedding in Penn Museum. The venue is very charming, with a touch of old antique and nice tall ceiling. We worked with Hladini and Jamie on the venue and catering. I have to say that working with them gave me the best assurance and I couldn't thank them enough of the support they provided. The venue was elegant, the food was delicious, and the service was superb.

  • I got married in March 2019 and people are still talking about 2 things- how amazing the Penn Museum is as a wedding venue and how delicious the food was. Atiya and Michelle were amazing to work with. From the start they had amazing recommendations on DJs, cake, how the day should flow- they just made it super easy, including handling last minute (like less than 24 hours) changes to the guest list. The catering staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating to our guests. If anything went not to plan (and I seriously doubt that the team at the Museum would let that happen, but, you know, stuff happens), neither my husband nor I knew about it, that’s how seamless the day was.

  • This museum holds a special place in our hearts. Bill and I had our first date, walking through the beautiful halls and exhibits in spring of 2014 and he later proposed to me in the Chinese Rotunda on 2/24/18. When researching venues, I initially thought that the Penn Museum would be way out of our budget . I did a bit of research and found the Sweet and Simple Ceremony and contacted Hladini Mensah Hladini answered all of my annoying questions and countless emails. She helped ease our nerves and even held one of our bags that held my spare shoes. Our Simple and Sweet ceremony was held in the Upper Egyptian Gallery on a beautiful Thursday in November. It was a perfect day!

  • Penn Museum is a gorgeous non-conventional venue with multiple different rooms/exhibitions/gardens available for use, and the coordinators (Atiya and Hladini) cannot be more helpful or friendly. Initially we were slightly concerned about having to use the exclusive in-house caterer - CxRA, worrying that we don't have much flexibilities or options. But CxRA (Michelle as the coordinator) had been nothing but flexible and excellent in their quality of food and service. Michelle and the chef even helped us create appetizers and desserts that were not on the menu. On the wedding day, Atiya and Michelle ran the show perfectly. Although we were repeatedly told by married friends to expect something to go wrong on our wedding day, we honestly could not think of anything that went wrong (thanks to our other vendors as well). And all of our guests could not stop talking about how great the venue and food were. So THANK YOU, Penn Museum!

  • My husband and I were married in the gorgeous Stoner Courtyard in October. Hladini, the coordinator who helped us plan, she was simply THE BEST. She responded to all of our NUMEROUS emails so quickly, answering all of our questions, helping us through all the logistics; we were so lucky to have her. Our guests loved the Courtyard, the trees were lush with the trickling sounds of the water fountain.... if you are planning for a very intimate wedding and wanna make your laugh and cry at a beautiful venue with the best helper in the world, Penn Museum is the one. :)

  • My wife and I were looking for a unique wedding venue in Philadelphia and thankfully we stumbled across the Penn Museum by chance. Atiya was absolutely fabulous to work with and immediately made us feel welcomed from the very beginning. Additionally, she was always very responsive with any questions that we had and really goes above and beyond to make sure everything is set for the day. The venue is absolutely stunning and it's amazing that you can take advantage of multiple spaces that are available from the courtyard outside (where we had our ceremony) to the beautiful Chinese Rotunda and Upper Egypt Gallery for dinner and dancing. Michelle from Restaurant Associates (the museum's exclusive caterer) took fantastic care of us and the food was simply delicious! We highly recommend that anyone consider the Penn Museum for a wedding or event!

  • My daughters wedding on 4/15/18 was so incredible that one guest remarked "how do you top this" LOL We weren't looking for a perfect day, just a happy one but we got perfection anyway. the venue is so gorgeous it takes your breath away. The catering manager and Facilities manager are so exceptional that they made the planning a pleasure. It was fun from start to finish. They are the best!! Price per guest and rental space was comparable to other places but nothing can touch them for elegance.

  • I truly can’t recommend the Penn Museum more highly. Working with Atiya and Michelle was an absolute pleasure. They made every aspect of planning this huge event a joy. We feel incredibly lucky to have had such a thoughtful, professional, and talented crew as part of our big day. Guests are still talking about how magical the wedding was!! They are so flexible (don’t have to call indoor vs outdoor til 10am the morning of) and were super accommodating to any request. We had a wedding with 155 guests in October. The ceremony was in Pepper Hall/Buddhism Gallery, cocktail hour in Lower Egypt, dinner in the Chinese Rotunda, and dancing in Upper Egypt. Our guests faces when they walked into each room were PRICELESS. We were initially a little worried about having an in house caterer but CXRA is absolute best case scenario. The food was fantastic. If we had chosen a different venue I would have wanted to pay them to come to us! I also highly recommend using Philly Star Events for your DJ ... Read more

  • Atiya and Michelle were amazing! From the first day we met them, we felt completely at ease. They made our wedding planning process seamless and were both supportive and accommodating for our complicated wedding. The museum is also a beautiful venue with many settings for different parts of our wedding, from the ceremony to cocktail reception to dinner.

  • Overall, we were very happy with our experience at the Penn Museum. While everything isn't perfect, the beauty of the venue outweighed the negatives for us. Pros: - Amazing unique spaces. Our guests loved being able to view the exhibits and be surrounded by the artifacts, especially in Lower Egypt with the sphinx. Several commented that they felt like they were celebrities at a gala or 'James Bond'! We love our photos and the fact that many of our guests continue to comment on the venue and how unique it was. - Outdoor + indoor spaces for large wedding size. Other museums in the Philly area weren't able to accommodate our number of guests and still have the outdoor ceremony I had always dreamed of with an indoor reception. - Coordinators and staff. Atiya is professional, responsive, and accommodating. She was very helpful in coordinating with the different vendors on day of. We were even able to store many of our wedding decor items, including the chuppah, in her office's storage ... Read more
