Chihuly Gallery at Aria Las Vegas

Dale Chihuly is the artist responsible for that amazing glass sculpture inside Bellagio (and in a few other Strip hotels). He also has an ultra-modern gallery space at Aria featuring his incredible work in a contemporary setting. The gallery is well-suited for ceremonies as well as long-table style receptions for around 50 guests.

The Boneyard at The Neon Museum

We can’t talk about museums without mentioning an incredible part of Las Vegas history: The Neon Museum! This outdoors walk-through museum is home to hundreds of neon signs from throughout Las Vegas history, providing an industrial-chic setting with a vintage backdrop for your vows. It’s popular for wedding photos, but getting married here (especially at night with the signs turned on) would be perfect for any Vegas, architecture or design fans.

Wedding Venues at DISCOVERY Children's Museum | LIttle Vegas Wedding

Discovery Children’s Museum

I think museums angled to kids are a fabulous space to get married in. They’re unique, playful and memorable! Las Vegas has the wonderful DISCOVERY Children’s Museum which features several different exhibit halls and stage venues perfect for a one-of-a-kind wedding. Who says getting married has to be an grownup affair, anyways?

Origen Rotunda at Springs Preserve

Set on 180-acres just a few miles off The Strip, Springs Preserve is a museum featuring desert botanical gardens, family events, traveling exhibits, trails and — you guessed it — weddings. There is an amazing array of outdoor spaces and gardens, but the Origen Museum Rotunda is the most gallery-style space. It features a high vaulted ceiling, and a room ringed with kinetic granite sculptures floating on water and sculptured cattails, all etched with the names of museum donors.

Mob Museum Vegas Wedding

The Mob Museum

Not only is The Mob Museum (National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) a symbol representing a colorful part of Las Vegas history, it’s a fun place to get married! The architecturally important building (a former US Postal Office and federal courthouse) is a gorgeous reminder of the early days of Vegas and offers some unique venue spaces within, like an accurate replica courtroom.

Just the Deets

Definitely different, the Discovery Children’s Museum is an offbeat, one-of-a-kind choice when it comes to spaces for your Vegas wedding. It’s perfect for the young at heart and whimsical couples, as it’s a three-story museum packed with crazy colors, imaginative displays and interactive exhibits promoting science, art and culture.

The venue best suited to hosting wedding ceremonies is likely Fantasy Festival, a theatre-style event with a stage for puppet shows you can get married on. Receptions are best in the 5,000 square foot Traveling Exhibit Hall. However, the entire museum is available for customization and the special events staff will work with you to find the best set-up for you. A full museum buyout is $10,000 and can hold up to 1,000 guests, for a five hour event.

Fantasy Festival

What’s Special?

  • A very one-of-a-kind experience, and that’s saying something in Las Vegas!
  • The venue just opened in 2013 and not many weddings have been held there yet so there is an exclusivity to it
  • On top of the space, also included are: standard house lighting, 5′ round banquet tables  and standard ceremony chairs as available

Factor In

  • Excellent photo taking opportunities not only in the museum, but nearby in downtown Las Vegas, at The Smith Center and Symphony Park or in the arts district
  • Due to constraints on food and beverage licenses, you must use preferred vendors if you wish to serve food or liquor on the property. Vendors include Masterpiece Cuisine, Art of Catering by Vic Vegas, Divine Events and Liquid Courage and but are subject to change. Check with Discovery for the latest list
  • All decorations must be freestanding with no pins, nails, staples or tapes of any kind are permitted on any walls or floors inside DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. No birdseed, glitter or confetti and no pyrotechnics, haze/smoke/fog effects or decorative open flame (candles) are permissible
  • On the other hand, you won’t need much decoration. The space really is amazing!
