Here are some recent photographs taken at a wedding on the grounds by Sarah Rachor, Rachor Photography.

I Love Memphis named the Metal Museum one of the "10 Uniquely Memphis Places To Get Married" and The Memphis Flyer says its the best place to get married!

"The grounds of the National Ornamental Metal Museum overlooking the Mississippi River. It is absolutely the most beautiful place in Memphis to create a memorable moment...with gorgeous trees, giant bells and chimes to ring after the "I Do s" are said, and a sweet gazebo for those perfect Kodak moments." --- Sept 25, 2003


Come celebrate your wedding or other special occasion on the beautiful grounds of the Metal Museum. Nowhere else can you find such an affordable, unique setting. There is the Riverbluff Pavillion, sculpture on the grounds, and a view of the Mississippi River that Mark Twain described as the finest between Cairo and New Orleans.

Plan your wedding vows to coincide with the sun setting over the river. Dance or picnic surrounded by 100-year-old trees. In addition to the river view, our gazebo constructed of historic castings, may be used as a focal point for your ceremony. Plan the wedding of your dreams. There is ample space for a dance floor and the electrical capacity for a DJ or your favorite band.
