Did you know that MOSH can host your upcoming wedding, rehearsal dinner, or other special event? The Museum of Science & History offers a dynamic backdrop for your new start as a married couple. MOSH offers a venue that has all the class and excitement of the grandest hotel, but with a lot more personality to help create a unique wedding experience tailored just for you.

A Wedding at MOSH Offers the Following Perks and Possibilities:

  • A private waterfront venue
  • Rooftop that overlooks the St. Johns River and city skyline
  • Onsite parking
  • Table, Chair, and Linen Rentals
  • Access to exhibits
  • Preferred vendor lists

Here are ideas to make your special day one that friends and family will be talking about for years to come:

  • Incorporate explosive science experiments or a Cosmic Concert into cocktail hour; time will fly as guests are entertained while you and your fiancée are getting photos taken!
  • Host your rehearsal dinner on the rooftop; with proper planning you can coordinate your wedding or
    rehearsal dinner with City fireworks displays (New Year’s Eve, Fourth of July or the Jacksonville
    Light Boat Parade the day after Thanksgiving). *
  • Say “I do” under the stars of the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium.
