Baltimore, Maryland

$500 off any rental held between now and June 30, 2022 - New Bookings Only

Imagine your guests overlooking the beautiful harbor with the city skyline as your backdrop. Located in a historic oyster cannery, the Baltimore Museum of Industry provides a one-of-a-kind setting for your special day.

The museum's waterfront Decker Gallery accommodates 300 guests for a seated event; 250 seated with space for a dance floor; and 500 or more for cocktail reception service. A floor-to-ceiling wall of windows and a beautiful brick terrace afford a spectacular view of the Inner Harbor.

The outdoor pavilion accommodates 300 seated guests or many more for cocktail reception service; additional space is available on the adjoining waterfront point. Clear sides can be lowered during inclement weather.

The BMI is pleased to offer free on-site parking, a stunning waterfront location in downtown Baltimore and a variety of approved caterers to choose from.




The BMI was an amazing place to have a wedding - it's got great charm and personality, Claire and her staff work seamlessly with vendors and bands, and our guests LOVED walking around and browsing all the cool exhibits and galleries before the ceremony, during the cocktail hour, and even during the reception. HIGHLY recommend.

The venue speaks for itself - perfect location right on the harbor with fun and interesting decor that doesn't require any extra work. However, it's the staff that made our wedding at BMI so memorable. Wedding planning is known for being a stressful time with a million little details to take care of, but the staff were so easygoing yet helpful and efficient that we didn't have a single worry. We went with Zeffert and Gold catering, which has worked at the venue for years, so there were no planning headaches or logistical difficulties with which we had to grapple. It feels superfluous to give this place a positive review as it's obviously a wonderful choice, but due to the great service and wonderful evening we had, we want to make sure everyone knows about it.

The Baltimore Museum of Industry is the BEST wedding venue in Baltimore! We were so happy to have chosen it for our wedding reception. The BMI is an incredible value, and provides such a unique backdrop for a wedding. Claire, Kelley, and Angie were all great to work with during the planning process and during the actual event. The museum interior is so cool, and our guests loved exploring and checking out various exhibits. I felt that we didn't have to put too much thought (or money) into decor aside from flowers, because it is built-in! The location on the water can't be beat. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather, so we had our cocktail hour on the terrace overlooking the harbor, and our guests were able to go in and out all night long. We haven't yet received our professional wedding pictures, but the BMI provides so many amazing options for photos! We had a blast posing for them with our bridal party. We received many compliments from our guests about the venue, and it was a huge factor in making our reception so perfect!

The BMI is a great place to hold a wedding or any other events. Everyone commented on the uniqueness and all the decor in the museum. It needed very little decor with how much it already has. Everyone at the BMI was super helpful, friendly, nice, fun, and absolutely amazing to work with. They were very quick to answer any emails we had. I would highly recommend the BMI!
