“The HMNS was the perfect venue for our international reception and dinner in which we hosted company representatives from 15 countries. The exhibits provided simulating entertainment and educational opportunities for our guests, and the Paleontology Hall offered a unique ambiance as the backdrop for our catered dinner. The Museum events staff and catering services were exceptionally knowledgeable and most helpful to me in planning our event. They made my job so easy!”
-Nancy Turner, Corporate Public Affairs, ConocoPhillips

“Thank you so much for the Museum’s involvement in my first date, engagement, and the wedding ceremony. The ceremony went well, and everyone involved with the Museum was courteous and helpful. My wife and the guests loved it. The engagement in the Hall of Gems was unique, and the ceremony in the Butterfly Center at sunset was beautiful. Thank you so much for the waterfall touch at the end. I can’t express enough my gratitude for the event. From the engagement to the wedding… I really appreciate your efforts. Everyone loved the setting.”
-Roby Fulkerson IV
