The High Desert Museum was a beautiful venue for our wedding reception. My fiancé and I loved the fact that the museum specializes in education in the land, wildlife, culture, and history, and would provide a unique setting where our guests co...
uld enjoy several exhibits during the evening. Instead of paying private business the hefty price of renting a space, we were excited to support the museum and all of the great things it has to offer the community and visitors alike. Setting up our tables in one of the halls with glass on either side, allowed us to feel like we were close to the outdoors, while still being out of the heat for the comfort of our guests. The facility was clean and beautifully lit. We had the option to use their projector (although we ran out of time to finish putting a slide show together, like I had hoped to do). The museum staff also allowed us the opportunity to get pictures with our photographer outside on the grounds around various exhibits. My only regret is that the day went by in such a rush that we didn't get to browse through the exhibits open to our guests ourselves!
The facility itself is a five star choice. The only reason for the four stars was a change in event coordinators three weeks before the event. The previous event coordinator preferred to communicate via phone and some of the things we had discussed weren't clearly written into the contract, so there was some confusion in what was was to be included and duration of the event with the new coordinator. My recommendation would be to make sure you get everything in writing, in case there is a change in staff unexpectedly. Also, no one turned on the lights in the parking lot, and since it was an evening reception, all of our guests had to exit to a pitch-black walk back to their cars. I wish I had realized that at the time, so I could have notified someone on staff; however, that definitely should have been taken care of by the museum as a host for evening events.
All in all, great venue, lots to see and a unique setting for your guests, especially if you have out-of-town visitors. I would highly recommend supporting this community gem; you will not be disappointed!
