It’s a special day and you’ve been searching for a unique location. A wedding on the South County Museum grounds will be one where guests can enjoy a relaxing and beautiful backdrop to the day.

The Museum is on a seven-acre campus located on the 174-acre Canonchet Farm Park, two miles off US 1 in Narragansett. It’s just a five-minute walk from Narragansett Town Beach.

Weddings are hosted from May through October. Weddings of 50 people or less may take place in the Metz building.  Ceremonies with more than 50 people are held outside. Select a location – on the lawn or in the ivy-covered stable ruins — and the rest is up to you. You arrange for tents & rental equipment. We do have some local vendors and Museum-affiliated musicians that we can recommend as needed.

We have ample parking. All of our buildings are handicapped-accessible. Restrooms are available. There is no heating or air conditioning.
