"A huge thank you for all your help in the lead up and onsite. The event was a giant success and honestly working with you on it was awesome. You were so great with all my adhoc questions and made it so easy to get everything together!”

"We used the Grand Foyer for our 25th Anniversary event. The event was exceptional, and being hosted in such a grand building made the night even more special."

"We held a wedding for our Son Darel (groom) and his wife Alya (bride) at the Museum Event Centre, it was a fabulous venue and the staff that we dealt with provided excellent service. We could not have asked for anything more on the night of the wedding with the lighting, decoration and staging – it was great. It was a beautiful wedding night and an event that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thanks”
