Flexible, kind, supportive
Planning to get married in 2020 was stressful to say the least. Our venue, the Museum of Nature, was extremely flexible and supportive of all the changes we had to make. Working with Diane was an absolute delight. We are so lucky to have had vendors like this with us through a stressful time.Sent on 21/04/2021
Canadian Museum of Nature's reply:Ana - thank you so much for your review - it's greatly appreciated! Wishing you all the best with your plans! Too bad we could not make it work for you at the Museum due to Covid. But I'm so happy to see this! All the best to you both!

We had our wedding here this past weekend. Diane and her team were phenomenal and everything went extremely smoothly - Diane and team were very responsive to our questions and concerns. We couldn't be happier without choice!Sent on 08/10/2019

Wonderful venue for ceremony and reception! Staff were professional and super helpful -- plus the venue is so beautiful that it doesn't even need decorating. I'm also celiac and the in-house caterers made the ENTIRE menu from hors d'oeuvres to dinner to dessert gluten-free and completely celiac-safe. It was AMAZING to be able to eat everything and not worry about whether it was safe for me, and everyone said the food was the best wedding food they'd ever had, without knowing it was all gluten-free. Everyone there was fantastic to work with, and the wedding was absolutely perfect! Everyone loved cocktails with the dinosaurs, too!Sent on 16/01/2017

We got 20% (or 25% - can't remember) off the venue because we met the coordinator at the Bridal Show in Shaw Center. If you can make it to one of those shows and Museum of Nature is there, you will save some cash ;)Sent on 27/09/2016
