Host Your Wedding or Special Event at Our Museum

The Nassau County Museum of Art is situated on 145 acres and occupies an elegant Georgian style mansion. The venue abounds with unique experiences that only a museum of true grandeur could offer, including formal gardens, outdoor sculpture park, arboretum, rolling lawns, meadows, and ponds. Every change of season reinvents the atmosphere, culminating in a spectacular celebration of nature itself.

The Mansion features critically-acclaimed art exhibitions, where guests mingle amongst some of the world’s top artists’ works. The Formal Gardens offer a picturesque backdrop for wedding ceremonies and photoshoots. Guests are encouraged to view the art on exhibit and stroll the grounds throughout your event.

"The Museum is one of the most beautiful locations on Long Island."

The Museum provides several event spaces in the Mansion, each elegant and unique, to capture just the right setting for your gathering, including a tented pavilion, library, art gallery and outdoor terraces as well as formal gardens and lush natural surroundings.

A variety of event styles can be accommodated, such as an elegantly-seated dinner, swanky cocktail party, educational lecture, or business conference. Event spaces can be combined and pricing adjusted accordingly, the possibilities are endless!
