About Historic Pensacola Venues

As America's first settlement, the city of Pensacola is steeped in historic charm and culture, providing unique and intimate views into the history of Florida. Historic Pensacola offers multiple venue options in the heart of our city, just yards from the Pensacola Bay. Whether you prefer museum settings, quaint churches or lush garden locales, we are sure to have the perfect location to host your special event. Our venues include: Barkley House- Set on the Pensacola Bay, the Barkley House is one of the last remaining examples of a high-house in the city. Because of its beautiful grounds and spectacular view, it is a popular venue for outdoor weddings and receptions. This location provides many options for couples planning their wedding festivities-- the inside of the home can hold 30-50 people for a reception at bistro tables and the grounds of the Barkley House can accommodate up to 200+ guests. Old Christ Church- Since it was built in 1832, Old Christ Church has served the Pensacola community as an Episcopal Church, public library and museum. The location is a popular ceremony site for couples looking for a quaint spot close to many downtown sites. The pews of the church can fit 150 guests. Museum of Commerce- To beat the Florida heat, the museum offers an indoor respite set in the middle of an 1890's streetscape. With room for seated meals for up to 175 guests and 200-250 for a cocktail reception, the Museum of Commerce is the perfect spot for lively receptions in the Historic Pensacola Village and is located steps away from downtown bars and restaurants. Pensacola Museum of Art- Your unique event deserves a unique space. There is no place better to hold your event than the Pensacola Museum of Art, the hub of visual arts in our city. The PMA serves as the perfect spot to host art-centric weddings, corporate events, and receptions. The PMA can accommodate up to 100 guests. Voices of Pensacola- This multicultural center highlights the diversity of the city through exhibits representative of cultural groups that have shaped Pensacola history. Voices of Pensacola is the perfect space for intimate ceremonies, corporate retreats, workshops and lectures, and cocktail receptions for 50-75 guests. Museum Plaza- This lively park, located behind the Pensacola Museum of History, opened in 2019 and is the largest venue space at the Historic Trust. With over 13,000 feet of event space, the possibilities are endless on the plaza. Fountain Park- If you are looking for a picturesque option for your event, Fountain Park is the perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. South of Seville Square, this small park has a decorative fountain highlighting various scenes of Pensacola history. This location serves as a beautiful backdrop for festivals, weddings, and outdoor events. Trader Jon's Exhibit: One of Pensacola's top tourist destinations for decades, Trader Jon's was named after infamous owner Martin "Trader Jon" Weissman. Decorated with photos and memorabilia, this space was a safe haven where young flight students, military personnel, astronauts and movie stars rubbed shoulders with local politicians, characters and the occasional ne'er-do-well. Any event with a lively group of friends would be perfectly suited for this vibrant space, inside the Pensacola Museum of History.
