Celebrate under the stars!

The Bell Museum offers a variety of wedding package options, including weddings under the stars in the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium and full-museum rentals. Plan your special day in a beautiful and unique venue.

Looking for a venue for your rehearsal dinner? The Nucleus is an intimate space tucked into the Minnesota Journeys gallery on the museum’s second floor, featuring the white pine found throughout the museum as well as built-in audiovisual equipment. The Nucleus can accommodate up to 60 guests at round tables or 80 guests in theater seating, and offers additional outdoor space on our rooftop observation deck.
