Kudos & Reviews

  • Reviews on WeddingChannel from the Knot
  • Bride "Mrs. Octopus" maintained two funny and thoughtful blogs, Wedding Bee and Steel City Bride, to document her special day and all that went into creating it. And there are lots of photos!
  • "It was a beautiful space for a wedding and everyone was happy - the kids had their own areas and enjoyed themselves thoroughly - so of course the parents enjoyed themselves too!"
  • "It was the perfect wedding space - we could not have asked for a better space to celebrate our families coming together. We were in the studio, which is a very unique space that offered something for everyone. After all the spaces we looked at - this was the one that spoke to us the most."
  • "The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh was the perfect spot for our classic, yet whimsical, wedding reception. The staff was accommodating and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. I wholeheartedly recommend the museum to any bride looking for a unique and affordable venue."
