Our experience with Avoca was wonderful. Beautiful setting, reasonable cost, and excellent staff made Avoca the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding! - David

I of course like any bride stressed how things would turn out. I really had no need to do that. I am one of the most disorganized brides they've had to deal with and they were so extremely gracious. Mike and Shelby were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this venue to all of Campbell County and neighboring counties to check out when you're looking for a venue for an event. - Me'Chelle

Megan and I just wanted to say thank you for such a great experience! The wedding was perfect and everyone loved the venue. We really appreciate all the help you had given us throughout the process and just wanted to say thank you for doing everything you could. We will definitely recommend Avoca for couples to be married in the future! - Andrew  

Mike, We wanted to thank you so much for your role and generosity in making Lindsay and Chris' wedding a beautiful event. We realize you have gone above and beyond what we expected, and we are so very appreciative! - Jeff & Becky

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and I would definitely recommend! - Rebekah

Absolutley the best bang for the buck - a beautiful venue for the price! - Somer

Avoca Museum was the place we used for our wedding and I must say it was "The Place". The setting was beautiful, the staff was excellent and very accommodating in every way, to the last detail (even a place for the flowers to be put together.) What bride doesn't want a nice room to prepare for her wedding, and the same for the groom, this happened in a most excellent way. One room in the house was used just to display the cake, while one of the other rooms was used to set up the reception/meal. The great thing is you don't feel you are in a stuffy, traditional, church, but in a very nice, big home, with a touch of elegance. Once the wedding concluded, and guest were waiting for pictures to be concluded the grounds, museum were all open for everyone to enjoy, no admission charge, where are you going to find such a place. The reception/meal was held in a tent out side, but the meal was served from the dining room inside. If you are considering a place to have a wedding, this is a must. - Scott

The Most Amazing Wedding Venue Ever!                                                                                                                                                        the title may be over the top. But it's the way that I feel about Avoca Museum and its amazing director Mike. Our family lives in Pennsylvania; the groom's family lives in Georgia. The couple lives and works around Lynchburg, Virginia, so they wanted a unique venue that was out-of-doors and distinctive. They found that plus so much more at Avoca.The museum house is beautiful, set atop a hill off of Main Street (Business Route 29) in AltaVista. As beautiful as the front is, the backyard and gardens offer wonderful surprises and discoveries that make an event fun for everyone. Planning a wedding from out-of-state can be daunting, but Mike made it not only painless but a joy. His suggestions were spot-on since he knows what works. The ceremony was beautiful, held under the majestic trees. The reception was there as well, with service from the kitchen. The stage area in the back provided space for music and dancing. At the reception, guests enjoyed hearing the story of the family who lived in the house, and looking at recently found artifacts. I would highly recommend Avoca Museum as a wedding / reception venue...and a great place to take students on field trips as well! - Kim

I had my wedding at Avoca Museum on October 19th. They made the entire planning process so easy for me and my now husband. We lived out of town, but they would let us come see the place and ask questions whenever we needed too. the staff is very good at communication, and easy to work with. Mike would go above and beyond to help us out whenever we needed something. Avoca is a great place to have a wedding and I would totally recommend this place. The ground outside and the house are so breath taking, it is beautiful!. People are still complementing me on the venue. The Avoca is an amazing place. - Christina

I directed my niece/nephew's wedding and reception at the Museum. It was an awesome spot and the staff was there for what we needed - but not underfoot. It's a beautiful place and well designed for weddings and other parties. I need to go back sometime to see the museum; I like the way they have so many things on display as if they were in actual use. Very impressed. - Irene
