    When my husband and I got engaged we wanted to find a place that was fun and unique in Baltimore. Neither of us had ever been to the B &O railroad museum but randomly found it on the internet (thanks, Google!) while looking at other museums around the city. We went for a tour and were blown away!!!! It is beautiful in the roundhouse, truly breathtaking! The trains, flags, and high ceilings make for a beautiful backdrop! Kathy Hargest who is in charge of running the events is AMAZING!!! She is so so organized and makes you feel so calm and relaxed about your special day because she has everything under control! She was amazing to work with!! :) She was also great with working with the vendors - we had a walk through with our caterer and her and with our photographer.

    On our wedding day, our guests LOVED the venue! They enjoyed checking out the trains during cocktail hour and seeing how beautiful the museum is when it is lit up at night! I honestly loved it and would very much recommend this venue!! It was awesome!!!

    When we got engaged we knew we wanted a unique venue in Baltimore City, and we got all of that and more with the B&O. When we walked in to the venue we knew we had to have our wedding there. It is absolutely beautiful, from the cathedral round ceiling to all of the trains surrounding where your guest sit. We worked with Kathy and she was awesome, very professional and gets back to you very quickly. She was there the day of, and after the wedding they even sent us a CD of pictures they took during our reception, which was very kind of them. Great venue, amazing coordinator (Kathy), and all around a perfect experience.
