When it comes to originality, few venues can compete with this week’s featured venue. At CR Smith Museum (in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex) not only can you utilize the various spaces available throughout in a very customizable way, but you and your guests will have private access to the entire museum throughout your celebration night, including their state-of-the-art movie theatre which features first class seating for over 100 guests!
CR Smith Museum is a museum dedicated to honoring and recognizing American Airlines’ pioneer Cyrus Rowlett Smith as well as the many years of innovation and improvements in commercial flight. Although this Museum hosts a number of corporate events and education programs, couples have started taking advantage of all the awesome features this museum has to offer wedding parties.
One feature that attracts many couples is the variety of locations within the museum that can be used to host both the celebration and reception. By far the most popular, the Premier Exhibit is used by couples due to the large space available. A historically beautiful DC-3 adorns this area and offers ample room for hosting a ceremony, reception and even a dance floor; all of which can be arranged according to your preference.
Among other locations available there is the aforementioned theatre and other engaging exhibits within the museum. One couple recently used the theatre to host their ceremony while playing their homemade videos and family clips for all guests to enjoy, later leading their party to the main exhibit site for the rest of their celebration.
Since the museum will be closed to all except those in your party, you will also get to enjoy all the exhibits, exciting flight simulator and historic displays at your own pace. These locations are great for cocktail hour or for a stroll after dinner, before the dancing begins. Bar set-ups can be easily placed throughout different locations making these options very popular. And since the museum features Special Exhibits which change periodically, even if you or any your guests have visited before, you are sure to find something. The current special exhibit features fascinating displays and information on the famous Flight 1549, also referred to as The Miracle on the Hudson (you definitely don’t want to miss out on this one).
With so much to see and do, this venue is a real gem. Accommodating up to 350 guests can be fun and easy when there are so many features to enjoy. Screens, sound systems and the large screen theatre are sure to add a unique touch. And to make sure that your night of celebration goes as smoothly as possible, the staff will be there to help you the entire time; namely, Shane Melvin, Event Manager at CR Smith Museum, who has the experience and charismatic personality to make your big day even more enjoyable. And if you happen to be travelling to the DFW area for your celebration they even have a list of preferred vendors that can provide you with some fine Texas dining!
So whether you’re an aviation junkie, avid traveler, history buff or just passionately curious and adventurous, you are sure to find CR Smith Museum a great place to host your party. What better way to express your love than by making your celebration a night of new and exciting experiences that none could forget!?
