A Night at the Museum

The American Swedish Historical Museum is making history of its own with new renovations and updates to the already standout venue.

“As an event spot, it’s totally unique, rich with history—so not a wedding factory,” says Mandy Lightcap, event designer for the Philly-based venue. “It’s in the city yet has tons of outdoor space.”

Museums Offer More Than Displays for Events

With their breathtaking art and glimpses of history, museums make perfect destinations for school trips and outings. But these stoic buildings aren’t just for students. Today, many museums offer private rooms for hosting events or meetings, and some will even close the galleries to create truly unique, private events. Luckily, New Jersey is home to a plethora of museums with rentable space, so plan your next meeting, event or party amongst historic antiques, manicured grounds and priceless art.
