I got married at the Chicago Sports Museum on September 16th, and I've been trying for days to figure out the correct words to use to describe my wedding here. No words do it justice except for Magic. Everything about the day was absolutely magical. The Chicago Sports Museum, and most importantly, Samson! was an absolute dream to work with. From viewing the venue, right down to the day of, I can not say enough incredible things. They were flexible, accommodating, easy to work with, responded quickly to e-mails with questions, and went so far above and beyond my wildest expectations to ensure the day was perfect, and it was. We have had multiple people state the our wedding was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. That would not have been possible without the Chicago Sports Museum. I cannot thank the team, and again, especially Samson, enough for everything they have done for me, and for making September 16th a day that will be talked about within my family and friends for years! From the view, to the food, to the space and the museum, it was magic. If you are considering a unique venue, that is easy to work with, memorable, and just hands down amazing, you NEED to look at this venue! THANK YOU!!!
We had our wedding here in June and it was AMAZING. The museum and staff are extremely flexible, and can remove a ton of the exhibits that are in the center of the space so you have all the room you need. We had about 150 people and it felt like plenty of space. The staff was unreal. Absolutely no one waited for a drink - we had several guests comment about how refreshing it was to attend a wedding where it actually seemed like there were enough staff members to provide exceptional service. The food options are basically endless. You can opt for plated dinners, a buffet package, or some a combination of several "stations". We opted for the latter and it was perfect for us. We had plenty of food, and people had almost endless options. The exhibits and memorabilia made for an awesome experience for our guests. We are both huge sports nuts, but even our guests who aren't loved the games and having something interactive to do (especially while waiting for the wedding party to arrive). They worked flawlessly with all of our vendors - even with Insomnia Cookies (an outside food vendor not associated with Harry Caray's), which we had delivered to serve instead of cake. We served these with the venue's butler-passed mini milkshakes, which was a HUGE hit. You also can't forget to mention the awesome view - our wedding was on Saturday, and so we were treated to a fireworks show at Navy Pier, which we could see perfectly out the windows. I could never write this review and not mention the man behind the curtain - Samson, our event coordinator. He was AMAZING. He truly went above and beyond to make sure we had all of our questions answered and felt prepared and stress-free the day of the event. He met with us as many times as we wanted and answered all of my emails same-day (which can be tough to come by in the wedding industry). If you even KIND OF like sports, this is a truly awesome venue!
The Chicago Sports Museum was the perfect venue for our Chicago themed wedding reception. Our guests were impressed by the decor, food and service! Big thanks to Veronica for making our wedding day go seamlessly so that we could truly enjoy ourselves.
