About Bella Vista at the Delaware Agricultural Museum

Bella Vista "beautiful sight" is how our clients describe our indoor and outdoor event areas. Nestled on the shores of Silver Lake in Dover, our bucolic country village is ideal for weddings, receptions, reunions and company retreats. The understated elegance of our indoor galleries is the envy of event planners. Think Bella Vista as the location for your: - outdoor wedding with a vintage covered bridge, pond and lake view as the backdrop. - intimate indoor wedding in a 1850's-era country church. - birthday or retirement party within the beauty and drama of "Night at the Museum". - reception or banquet in our gorgeous 1980 Club gallery with its dazzling views. - theme bridal or baby shower in a private gallery customized with your own dream decor. - elegant open air cocktail party and dinner within the romance of a quaint village.
