Philadelphia is home to so many gorgeous museums, and it’s always exciting when they become available as wedding venues. South Philly’s American Swedish Historical Museum is the latest historic space to begin booking weddings, and we can’t wait for you to see what a unique and breathtaking backdrop this landmark can be for your Big Day.

The Swedish Museum is the oldest of its kind in the United States and since its founding in 1926 has been a hub of Swedish culture and history. Inside the regal museum you’ll find 12 galleries filled with paintings and artwork of all sorts, but it’s the architecture of the building itself—soaring ceilings, intricate archways and massive staircases—that really makes this a spectacular wedding venue.

In their new partnership with Jeffrey A. Miller Catering, the Museum also underwent a slew of renovations to prepare the space for special events. In addition to the new bathrooms and renovated event space indoors, the Museum can now host your party on their tented terrace, which accommodates up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing.

The JAM Catering team is giving you the opportunity to check out the Museum for yourself this Friday, October 24, during their pop-up wedding show. You’ll have the chance to tour the space and enjoy food and drinks while chatting with the local vendors behind Peach Plum Pear Photography, Papertree Studio, Scratch Weddings and Little Bros. Beverage Outlet.

The event runs from 5:30-8 pm and is free for all couples and their guests. RSVP to or 215-421-7765.
