Verified Venue

Rich in Art and Architecture

Stunning picturesque backdrops are plentiful at Charleston's premier art museum. From prized works to classic architectural detail, this culturally rich venue pays homage to the city’s earliest art, collectors and artists. When the Gibbes Museum opened in 1905, it was a nod to the nourishing and inspiring power of art. Today, the Gibbes' Beaux Arts building has been restored to its original grandeur, notching its prestigious place along the Historic District’s Museum Mile.
Plan your dream celebration throughout Gibbes’ unique spaces. Treat your guests to a museum tour. Exchange vows under the opulent Tiffany-style glass dome in the rotunda gallery, host a starlit reception in the European-style Lenhardt Garden. And capture breathtaking photos throughout the museum and among the surrounding gardens, fountains, live oaks and magical pathways.
