About Us

Stamford Museum & Nature Center is a historic wedding venue located in Stamford, Connecticut. Less than an hour outside of New York City, this picturesque mansion was once the estate of businessman, fashion designer and philanthropist Henri Bendel. Now, the 118-acre estate offers two distinct event venues where you can host the wedding of your dreams – the Bendel Mansion and the newly constructed space, The Farmhouse.

Facilities and Capacity

Stamford Museum & Nature Center can accommodate up to 150 wedding guests in its superb indoor and outdoor event spaces. The Bendel Mansion was Bendel’s former weekend retreat and was designed in the style of a European estate. It features grand-scale rooms like The Great Hall, the Bendel Gallery, the Sunroom and the Solarium, oversized lead glass windows and outdoor terraces, and is surrounded by classical statues, sculptures and paintings. Intimate and grand ceremonies and receptions can be held inside the Bendel Mansion. Meanwhile, The Farmhouse is a rustically chic event space that features natural finishes, a high exposed-beam ceiling, and a large outdoor terrace with sweeping views of the charming, 118-acre estate. It sits on the estate’s working New England Farm with its pastures, barns, maple sugaring house and organic gardens.

Services Offered

The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is a gorgeous property that is available for hosting several types of wedding celebrations, such as bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and receptions. The museum and nature center offer a variety of event services to couples planning their nuptials in the heart of the historic city of Stamford. Those services include event planning, event rentals and wireless Internet.
