Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University – A Large Durham Wedding Venue and Architectural Wonder

The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University is a spectacular choice for events. There is nothing quite like this Durham NC wedding and event venue. This Duke University museum has a giant atrium lobby which is used for large scale weddings of up to 500 guests for a cocktail style event, or 275 guests for a seated reception.

With contemporary design by architect Rafael Viñoly, the spacious atrium evokes the feel of an outdoor piazza, but with all the modern comforts of an upscale indoor venue. The glass ceiling is a true work of art, and lends itself to a truly unique and modern wedding style. This setting is not just an amazing event experience, but also creates wedding photos! Southern Bride & Groom magazine has selected this space as an editorial backdrop a time or two!

Planning a special event at the Nasher Museum is effortless with fully customized event services from the region’s best caterers – many who are also recommended by Southern Bride & Groom.

Nasher Museum Weddings Enjoy the Art Galleries

Best of all, the lobby is surrounded by exhibition galleries. So if you are an art-loving couple seeking a great museum venue in Durham, do not overlook the Nasher Museum. Your wedding guests will enjoy exclusive gallery access during the event.
