Beautiful design/architecture, impressive collection of everything music, fun/interesting interactive displays, informative tour, well worth the price of admisson!

Martha Hergert

beautiful space! Haven’t seen the museum yet but I have attended events and it was amazing.

Aaron Prasad

Wonderful facility and staff. Lots to do. Gourmet coffee downstairs and a number of interactive rooms. Gorgeous architecture!

Jon Lim

This is a beautiful space. A great addition to the Calgary downtown skyline. The architecture is wonderful and the acoustics were perfect. I attended a Christmas party in the main atrium last week and was blown away by the space. I can’t wait to come back to walk through the museum. Definitely a must see for architecture alone.

Went for a Private Reception before it opened but we were allowed to tour a bit of the Museum, cannot wait to go back and see the finished product

Here’s a quick review of the wedding we recently did at Studio Bell.

Julie and Stephen held their wedding at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre. Entertainment included dueling pianos. Tables were dressed in ivory, elegant, majestic linens. Centerpieces were created with crystal pedestals topped with rose ivory balls. Gold Chivari chairs with ivory leather cushions added to the classic feel for this spectacular wedding.

Wedding planning and décor by SIMPLY ELEGANT

Peter and the staff at Simply Elegant were AMAZING to work with – the perfect combination of professional, fun and practical. We used them for our wedding at the beginning of February 2017, and were extremely pleased with the service, the quality of the food, and their decor services . Peter worked closely with us leading up to our wedding to develop a menu and set up that stayed within our budget. He also acted as the go-between with our venue and was able to provide a lot of guidance and expertise on how to best orientate the space. We also used Simply Elegant staff to operate the bar and for the event set up and take down. They took care of everything on the day of, which allowed us to simply enjoy the day with our friends and family. We had such a great time in fact, that I think they were also potentially the only “responsible adults” left standing by the end of the night 🙂 Thank you for all your hard work and for making our day so special.

Julie & Steve

With Simply Elegant you are in great hands!
