  • Went for a wedding and the location is beautiful. Fantastic glass ceiling venue with plenty of arrangements for your wedding. **Note** if your having a wedding here know that it will have to end at 10pm due noise ordinance so if your start at 5pm or 6pm for your reception your good. Staff is incredibly kind and helpful. Definitely recommend this venue for your special day.
  • Our wedding day was incredible thanks to the Bryan Museum being the most beautiful venue in Texas! We fell in love with the glass Conservatory the first time we visited and continue to be blown away every time we walk through those front doors. Our reception dinner took place inside with 150 guests sitting comfortably. Our grand entrance right into the first dance under the chandeliers was pure magic. A highlight of the evening was dancing the night away out on the connecting patio with a perfectly refreshing March breeze. Peter, Jessica and Richard were fantastic to work with and there isn't a better place to host a Wedding/Party/Celebration. We are already looking forward to coming back on our 1 year anniversary (if not sooner)!
