With capacity for up to 180 guests, the museum is the perfect choice for your Wedding or Civil Partnership ceremony. The Victorian architecture and interior design of the gallery is magnificent and the moulding of the beautiful ceiling portrays a colour scheme of cornflower blue and gold which offers an overall feeling of romance to the special day. This elegant building located on the picturesque New Walk was designed by Joseph Hansom in 1837. Originally the Leicester Proprietary School, it became a museum in 1849. Since then the museum has steadily grown to become a major regional venue housing temporary exhibitions and Leicester's collections. The venue is an approved venue for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, renewal of wedding vows and naming ceremonies.
