Marconi Automotive Museum

The Marconi Automotive Museum houses a $30 million car collection featuring rare exotics, American Muscle and impressive Formula One racecars. The Marconi is a class 501©(3) foundation serving at-risk children’s charities throughout Orange County, California, and a portion of the net proceeds from booked events goes directly to children in need, our clients help us help kids.

Our distinctive event space has three diverse rooms. The Veranda showcases legendary motorcycles raced by some of the greats, including Ayrton Senna. The Race Shop houses a multitude of antique and historic open wheel race cars driven by Formula One champs Keke Rosburg and Michael Shumacker. The Main Museum has a variety of supercars ranging from Ferrari’s and rare exotics to vintage luxury vehicles and illegal street cars.

The museum can accommodate 500 people comfortably for a seated meal. Dare to be different and book The Marconi.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

The museum gives couples the rare opportunity to wow guests without depending on the generic beach front property or hotel banquet hall. We don’t book more than one wedding a day and strive to make each and every event at The Marconi one-of-a-kind. If you can dream it we can create it.

There is no limit to what our event planners can get done and both of our coordinators appreciate the significance of perfecting the little details. We’ve brought in zoo animals for a circus theme, fire breathers and stilt walkers for entertainment, a full-scale tank with live soldiers for a photo-op and have also facilitated more traditional ceremonies and receptions with 12-piece bands, DJs, dance floors and table decor.

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping make our day so memorable. The experience was great, and the staff worked hard to make the event go smoothly. Alison, the venue contact, was helpful and on the ball for everything, and her team was a pleasure to work with. The venue itself was a fun atmosphere for a unique wedding.” ~ Sarah Ailes

"We were looking into wedding venues last year. My fiance' and I are very untraditional and wanted something that is more "us". I happened to find out about Marconi online when researching nonprofit wedding venues. (non profit is the way to go if you want something unique).

We contacted them, received a quote and made an appointment to see the venue/museum. To be honest… the moment we stepped foot in the museum, we knew it was THE place for us. We were both in awe. We booked our wedding date and gave our deposit that same day.

Leading up to our date, I can't tell you how many times I played walking down the aisle in the car museum in my head. It was something I had dreamed about over and over since booking our wedding date. I knew it was going to be such an amazing experience.

I am a little OCD when it comes to planning events, and I thought it was going to be hard for me to let go and trust someone to plan our wedding the way I would. However, I felt SO confident in our wedding "team" and didn't stress at all! Alli at Marconi, was so amazing, helpful and patient! She went above and beyond for us. I will never forget her and Kristin from White House Catering (that's the catering service they work with).

Everything looked amazing the day of. We got TONS of compliments from our guests not only for how it looked, but also for the atmosphere. Everyone said it wasn't so dull and by the book like most weddings are. They said was fun and memorable. Many guests said it was the best wedding they've been too!

We highly recommend the Marconi as your venue." – Crystal Boyanger
