The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion is a contemporary, light-filled space where receptions and special events can be held, surrounded by views of the Michener Art Museum galleries.

The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion has been designed to dramatically increase the Museum's ability to offer its visitors custom programming while establishing the Museum as a premier destination for facility rentals.

Designed by the internationally recognized Philadelphia-based architecture firm KieranTimberlake, the Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion serves as a premier event space in Bucks County for weddings, private parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, corporate meetings, as well as exhibition openings, lectures and the Museum's popular Jazz Nights series.

The Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion is a 2,500 square foot light-filled, all-glass structure with a solid roof and doors. Extending into the Museum's Patricia D. Pfundt Sculpture Garden, the Pavilion's doors access both the galleries and gardens.

Terri was incredibly professional, responsive and knowledgable as our coordinator at Catering by Design. She helped us select menus, determine a sensible run-of-show and even choose linen colors. Terri was wonderful to work with and we'd highly recommend both CBD and the Michener as a venue. The museum space was gorgeous in late Spring, and was perfect for a ceremony/reception at the same site — easy to navigate, beautiful art and expansive spaces, and located near to Doylestown and lots of hotels and B&Bs.

When we booked our venue in February 2014, we had no idea how beautiful it would be 2.5 years later. The James A. Michener Museum was everything we could have asked for and more. It was picturesque, clean, and a unique place for us to exchange vows. More than a month later, guests are still talking about the galleries, the sculpture garden, the dramatic reveal of the glass atrium, and (of course) the wall. We would highly recommend The James A. Michener Museum.

Our spring wedding at the Michener Museum was stunning!! It was even better than I had imagined! This venue is stunning (especially when the sun is setting), beautiful, and unique. Jeffrey Miller Catering was also pretty easy to work with. The waiters/waitresses/captain/bartenders were all professional and the food was fantastic! Craig was our coordinator who guided us along the process. I loved everything about my wedding here.

We had our wedding in the Pavillion at The James Michener Museum in October. The event was exactly what I had dreamed - flawless and stunning. Craig was so amazing to work with - from start to finish I felt at ease with the museum and Jeffrey Miller Catering. The food was more that I could have asked for - fantastic! It was a treat for my guests to have such amazing food. The Pvillion was so beautiful at night and dramatic- so elegant and breathtaking! Thank you to JAM and Craig!

This venue was an amazing place to have our wedding! The thing that sold my husband on this venue was the pavilion where the reception was held. It has the appearance of an Apple store, modern, clean, and classic. The ceremony was held in their courtyard with a stone wall backdrop. The guests then moved seamlessly to where the cocktail hour was in the sculpture terrace. The museum also lets the guests wander around throughout the night, so guests can enjoy the works of art they carry. There are some minor limitations when it comes to decorations, but since it is a museum by day, it makes sense. It is such a beautiful and modern venue, that it isn't necessary to cover it up anyways! Lastly, the museum works exclusively with Catering By Design. We worked with Terri from CBD and Garnish (their florists) who made the whole process so easy and less stressful knowing that they have everything under control!

This venue was beyond our wildest dreams and also within our budget! Our guests could not stop commenting on how interesting and beautiful it was. Our pictures came out gorgeous as a result. The staff was lovely, too. The only tough part was that they required a proof of our wedding invitation so that they could approve the use of the museum's name. Somewhat annoying but not completely unreasonable. A perk of getting married at Michener is that you are also given a free year of membership to the museum. An awesome reason to go back and relive the day, not to mention support an important local arts institution.

Just had my wedding at the Michener in June. SUCH a great venue. It is absolutely beautiful and definitely unique. I loved that there were inside and outdoor places. We wouldn’t have to the same room for our ceremony, cocktail and reception even if it were to pour. Thankfully it didn’t and we had our ceremony and cocktail hour in two different areas of the sculpture garden then the reception in their beautiful reception space – and the whole time our guests were free to roam the museum. Not only was the space beautiful the food was amazing! When we went to our tasting we were impressed with the food but were sure it couldn’t taste that way at the actual wedding when they were cooking for 150 instead of two. To our surprise it was as good if not better. And our coordinator Craig was great – he set up all my DIY stuff correctly and made sure I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. We had a guest trip and hit her head at one point (she was fine!) but Craig responded well and got her the help she needed. I would say the only thing that wasn’t perfect during the whole process was occasionally it took a little while for Craig to respond to e-mails but he did always eventually get back to me and to me it wasn’t a huge deal but I want to be completely honest. It was such a great day – and we had several guests tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

We were actually the first wedding to be held in the new Pavillion May of 2012. We LOVED it there. It was beautiful and well-done all around. Sue was wonderful to work with throughout every step. Jeffery Miller catering - delicious! They're Gluten Free cake was awesome! We have received so many compliments on the venue - still to this day!!!

I had my wedding at the Michener Art Museum just last month and I couldn't have asked for a more romantic venue for my big day! Our guests are still talking about the venue, galleries, and food. I used their in-house vendor, Catering by Design, for catering, decor, and florals. They were very easy to work with and were able to execute my vision flawlessly. The food was amazing and the catering staff was a extremely courteous. And receiving a one-year membership to the museum a week after the wedding was a nice touch. The staff's ability to be flexible was limited due to the constraints of the art museum (e.g. no plants are allowed to be walked through the galleries and my wedding party was shushed by museum staff a number of times during photos in the museum galleries). That would be my primary complaint. I would still highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique venue.
