Weddings and wedding receptions - National Railroad Museum

All aboard! Next stop - "I Do!"


The Frederick J. Lenfestey Center at the National Railroad Museum offers a unique setting with space for up to 350 guests

Ideally suited for wedding ceremonies and receptions, the Lenfestey Center also features intimate spaces that are perfect for smaller parties. Host your rehearsal dinner aboard our 1930’s dining car, the Silver Spirit. Enjoy a train ride along the Fox River as you celebrate.

The Museum grounds also provide a memorable setting for outside wedding ceremonies. Arrive at your wedding ceremony on our train for a grand entrance!
