Elkins Gallery at the Mercer Museum offers a truly unique wedding experience. Choose your ceremony location - outside on the beautiful lawns, within the museum itself, inside the art-filled Elkins Gallery, or, during summer months, inside the wedding tent that adjoins the front entrance to the Elkins Gallery.

With a reception that includes dancing, there is capacity for 80 guests indoors or up to 150 guests when using the expanded venue with attached tent. Your special day includes access to the museum for all of your guests.

The Mercer Museum is a 7-story history museum of every-day life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries. Designed and built by Dr. Henry Chapman Mercer, the Mercer Museum is reminiscent of a castle, inside and out. It was completed in 1916.

Adjacent to the museum is the lovely Elkins Gallery, where receptions are held. Designed by well-known Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer, the Elkins Gallery is a Georgian style room that displays a fine collection of Bucks County paintings and boasts a vintage baby grand piano and two fireplaces. Along with the Mercer Museum, it is a National Historic Landmark.

Superb photo opportunities abound - outside on the Mercer Museum grounds and inside among thousands of vintage artifacts.

Mercer Museum's Elkins Gallery has received approximately 156 profile views in the last three months.
