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. A list of our Approved Caterers is located here.

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

    Wedding Day

    Our wedding was incredible.

    Kelley, our coordinator at the Museum was nothing short of AMAZING. She was so quick to respond to any and all of emails, answered all of my questions and just made my husband and I feel much more at ease.

    This venue is so beautiful and there's so many amazing things you can do with it in terms of decorations and themes. So much creative freedom to take in with the Baltimore city scene.

    Would definitely recommend

    Gorgeous venue with great staff

    BMI was a great place to hold our wedding! We had the option for the outdoor ceremony and then did our reception inside. The venue was unique and beautiful. Kelley, our contact there, was extraordinarily helpful, responsive, and accommodating. We were super happy with our experience there and would definitely recommend it to any couple looking to get married on the Baltimore Harbor!

    The BMI is the uniquest and fun venue in Baltimore to photograph.
