Design Elements

One of the best parts of renting out the National Museum of Wildlife Art for your wedding is that you don’t have to worry about decor! You’re probably already aware that the museum contains a large amount of beautiful artwork. Therefore, some decorating restrictions do apply. Candles, confetti, rice and other toss-able items are not allowed. Due to the acoustic paneling of the walls, nothing can be hung on the walls. Nothing can be removed from the walls and artwork cannot be covered. It’s simple!
