Engaged couples are always looking for unique and outside-the-box ideas for their Wedding Venue.

Here’s one idea that checks both those boxes: the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. Yes, a museum!


Pacific Grove's popular museum serves as the perfect wedding venue for all of the events surrounding your special day — rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception — all in the heart of Pacific Grove. The museum is filled with fascinating and informative exhibits and collections and includes a beautiful native plant garden.

The museum’s special events team is ready to work with you to make your event extra special. We will work with you to arrange the wedding of your dreams. Allow our staff to guide you through the process of planning your wedding reception — let us handle the details so you can enjoy the occasion with your closest friends and family.

You could opt for a small, intimate wedding in our Education Room & Garden, suitable for 50 guests. Or you could choose either our Bird Gallery or the Main Gallery and Garden, both able to accommodate up to 140 guests. We have several options that can be tailored to your needs and desires. And, museum members receive a discount.


Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life, a day you'll celebrate with friends, family and loved ones and cherish for the rest of your life! The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History would be honored to be part of that celebration and memories.
