About Baltimore Museum of Industry

Historic. Waterfront. Perfect.

Since 1981, guests at the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s waterfront location have enjoyed a breathtaking view of the Inner Harbor. With spaces both indoors and out, a convenient downtown location, and a free, on-site parking lot, the BMI offers an unrivaled backdrop for weddings.

Inside the historic oyster cannery building, a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows overlooks a beautiful brick terrace and spectacular views of the Inner Harbor. A separate space for cocktail hour affords guests the opportunity to explore galleries filled with local history.

Named after a founder of Black & Decker, the Alonso G. Decker Gallery accommodates 300 guests for a seated event; 250 seated with space for a dance floor and food stations; or 500 for a cocktail reception service. An adjacent brick terrace affords a spectacular view of the Inner Harbor. The Decker Gallery is available from 6:00 pm to midnight.

Our Open-Air Pavilion has an unforgettable waterfront setting, perfect for any event from a casual crab feast to a formal wedding ceremony. The pavilion accommodates 300 seated guests or more for cocktail reception service; additional space is available on the adjoining waterfront point. Clear sides can be lowered during mildly inclement weather. The pavilion is available from 6:00 pm to midnight.

Rentals include 25 tables (60″ rounds each seating 8-10 guests), chairs, a sweetheart table, tables for gifts/favors, a security officer, and did we mention free onsite parking?

We are happy to open our exhibition galleries, including the Machine Shop and Cannery, Garment Loft, or Print Shop, for your guests during the first two hours of your event for an additional fee.

With 10 companies on our Approved Caterers list, finding one that fits every style and budget is easy. Only an Approved Caterer may provide food, alcohol, and non-alcoholic beverage service at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

The BMI celebrates marriage equality and welcomes all couples to consider the museum for their big day.

Join us on Sunday, January 12 from 5pm-7pm for our annual Wedding Open House and find everything you need to plan the perfect event: caterers, DJs, florists, photographers, and more. Explore our beautiful and historic waterfront setting, ideal for your big day. FREE admission and parking. No pre-registration required.

    We love BMI and Kelley!

    We got married at BMI November 23, 2019 and it was simply amazing. Kelley is the ABSOLUTE BEST! She will make you feel at ease- she is so easy to work with and also makes you feel like wedding planning is a piece of cake. We couldn't have been more happy with our wedding and choosing BMI. Everyone who attended our wedding raved about the venue and its uniqueness.

    The most incredible venue!

    I cannot say enough great things about BMI. Kelley was amazing from the minute we were even interested in the venue - she responds to emails quickly and genuinely cares about doing her part in making your day a success. She is not only a great help, but a great person. I was thrilled to find out she would be there the night of our wedding and she was just as attentive and caring as I anticipated. As for BMI itself, I could not imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. The only thing we were a little bummed about when we booked is that you can't get married before 6:00 because the museum doesn't close until 4, but it ended up being perfect. We still did our first look and all wedding party and family photos prior to the ceremony starting at 3:15ish and we loved that. We got married on 11/2, the clocks switching that night, and originally were hoping to get married outside - we actually decided inside for the slight chilliness and darkness factors and we don't regret it one bit/felt it was just as beautiful. The sun setting in the background was unreal. Guests loved the atmosphere, the beauty and quirks of the museum, great photo opps, the stunning view of the harbor and the Domino Sugars sign. I could go on and on about this venue. Absolutely AMAZING experience!
