The CBMM was the perfect wedding venue for us and our guests. Our weeding day was beautiful, well organized, and a wealth of fun. Thank you CBMM!

The CBMM is a fabulous location for an event. Everything went smoothly and the weather was perfect. Our guests loved the venue and had a great time. Many thanks to Ida Heelin for all that she did to help with the event!

The rehearsal dinner for my son and his wife was beyond my expectations. The Maritime Museum is a beautiful setting for a more casual event and proximity to the water adds to the ambience. While we can't credit Ida with the weather, which was perfect, we can thank her for all that she did to ensure that our event was special.

We held the rehearsal dinner for my son's Easton wedding in the boat shed on the CBMM property. The venue and the museum campus were absolutely perfect for our event. The event coordinator, Ida, was both professional and responsive. Each time I visited the campus during the planning process she provided the access and information I needed to create an event that was enjoyed by the happy couple, our families and friends. The museum staff members were helpful, polite and knowledgeable. Ida offered suggestions that were useful and assisted in many ways both small and large that contributed to a smashing party on a beautiful, hot summer evening. The boathouse and museum property overlooking the Miles River provided a stunning backdrop for pictures and conversation for our guests. The price tag was a little high but truly worth the investment. Our rehearsal dinner was an event to remember, due in large part to the people that work to maintain the museum grounds, buildings and collections in a manner that will continue to welcome guests for years to come.

Our wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum was very memorable for us and our guests. The grounds of the museum provided exactly what we were looking for when searching for our nautical setting on the Chesapeake Bay. Our pictures and video serving as memories from our special day were exactly what we were hoping for. Ida and Tracey were great to work with and I would highly recommend this venue!

Great views, great venue, definitely not cheap - but well worth it if location is important to you (it was to us). Like many places, they have a list of "preferred vendors" - and a significant fee applies for using a vendor (and "vendor" seems to refer to caterers and florists) not on the preferred list. I used a "preferred" caterer and florist and was definitely not disappointed! Understanding that this is a working museum, and that they necessarily have high standards, they were overall pretty flexible with special requests I had, including allowing a 5-piece rock band to play the wedding. I would recommend this venue, and looking back on it I definitely don't regret it.

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum was a beautiful backdrop for our wedding. The Museum worked with me to allow us to have exactly what we wanted. Ida was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and I am grateful for all her help.

Navy Point at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum was the perfect location for our wedding. Our guests couldn't get over how beautiful it was and were honored to be a part of it. (They are already asking if we can "renew our vows" at the same location in a couple years!) The guests that couldn't make it, after seeing pictures, were sorry that they missed out. The only complaint I would have (and I don't know if there is much the CBMM could do about it) was that some family on their boat lingered in the water behind our ceremony and made it into some of our pictures which was unfortunate. Overall a beautiful location, I wouldn't change a thing and Ida was amazing to work with!
