The secret is out: there is no more magical space for your wedding
ceremony and reception, family reunion, or other special event than the Museum
of the Shenandoah Valley site. The Glen Burnie Gardens provide a number
of spaces in a
beautiful natural setting, from intimate garden rooms to a spectacular
Grand Allée! The MSV Reception Hall accommodates 80-100 guests
for a seated dinner and a special occasion tent can easily be added to the Reception Hall to accommodate larger numbers.
Equipped with audio visual equipment, a lectern, tables, chairs, and
the convenience of using the Café to cater your daytime
function, the MSV Learning Center and Reception Hall spaces
are perfect for corporate
events, classes, meetings and receptions.
