Bonnet House Museum & Gardens

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is a tropical oasis in Broward County.

Located on a natural barrier island, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, here you will find a lush garden courtyard and a partially covered veranda. Our veranda faces a tranquil lily pond, home to graceful swans and the yellow bonnet lily for which the house is named.

Upon arrival at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, you will pass through ornate gates, and the commotion of the outside world will fade. You and your guests will be swept back in time to experience a unique, intimate, outdoor wedding venue that exudes elegance.

Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is convienently located on the waterfront in Fourt Lauderdale, Florida. Contact us today for more information about rates and tenting options, or stop by for a visit during normal tour hours.
