The beautiful gardens make a natural setting for photos and offer a variety of areas to accommodate intimate gatherings. And if you’re looking for something unique, the venue boasts a beautifully restored estate and curated art gallery. Thus, whatever artwork is on display at the mansion and the grounds contributes a unique aesthetic to special events. The Muckenthaler has numerous enclaves for receptions of all types. Al fresco options include: the Center Circle Patio with its twinkling lights and original 100+ year old outdoor fireplace, the Adella and Northwest Lawns for larger parties, and the charming Palm Court for daytime events. Inside, the Art Gallery is an array of archways, skylights and gallery pin spots. There is space for up to 2,000 guests at the Muckenthaler.
