Weddings and Special Events
Enjoy a spectacular evening in the Museum’s grand Rotunda featuring a vaulted ceiling, beautiful black and white patterned terrazo floors, a second-floor balcony overlooking the main floor, and floor to ceiling windows showcasing downtown Augusta and views of the Savannah River. This venue can host standing receptions up to 500 guests as well as seated dinners for up to 200 people for dinner and dancing.
The Rotunda is perfect for weddings, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, graduation celebrations, holiday parties or any other special occasion. For weddings, enjoy a cocktail reception in our allée or surrounding the fountain while the Rotunda is transformed from a ceremony site to a reception space. Add on our Activity Center, which can be used for additional space or a Bridal Suite. Consider including the galleries of the Augusta Museum of History to provide a historic element to your event for a one-of-a-kind experience.
The Rotunda is available for evening rentals for 7 hours including cleanup time. Events must have cleanup complete and all vendors off-site no later than 12:00 AM.
The Rotunda is a 6,431 sq. ft. total special event area (includes lower level & balcony area) and is octagonal in shape.
