Wedding decorations – things to know

The National Museum of Wildlife Art contains a large amount of beautiful artwork. Therefore, some decorating restrictions do apply. Candles, confetti, rice, and other toss-able items are not allowed. Due to the acoustic paneling of the walls, nothing can be hung on walls. Nothing maybe removed form the walls and artwork cannot be covered.
