Dream wedding location in heart of Baltimore
Working with Natalie and the team at the Museum was a dream! They allowed us to tour the facility several times (after hours!) before we finally decided to book with them and then several times thereafter during the planning stages. They provided recommendations for layout and vendors but were also totally supportive when we did something different! Someone was there manning the front of the facility thought the wedding night which made it feel very secure. There was no issue with the attached restaurant and the location could not be beat for convenience for our out of town guests! So many hotels and parking options are within walking distance! Love the fact that we supported Living Classrooms when we booked the Museum and couldn’t have been more pleased with the way things turned out! Highly recommend having your wedding or other event at the Frederick Douglass Isaac Myers Maritime Museum!Sent on 02/02/2019

It was a picture perfect wedding venue
We loved having our wedding here! It was a perfect spot. Majority of the guests were from out of town. It gave a beautiful view of the harbor and Baltimore with air conditioning in August! The venue itself is beautiful and has so much character. Natalie is fantastic and truly awesome to work with!!Sent on 08/19/2019

This location couldn't have been more perfect, and we're sooo happy we chose it! I looked at hundreds of venues in the DMV area, and the first time I laid eyes on this location, I knew it was the one. I kept looking at other locations to make sure another location wasn't a better fit, but FDIMMP was always in the back of mind...and nothing else compared. Thankfully my husband shared my enthusiasm.Sent on 09/15/2019
We chose FDIMMP, because it spotlights the fight for freedom and equality. We wanted a meaningful location for our future family to visit, and it seemed like the perfect destination for the kids of an interracial marriage. We also loved that it was located on the water; had the rustic, industrial elegance of exposed brick and wood; and in the heart of Fell's Point so our guests could explore all the fun bars and restaurants nearby while visiting for the weekend.
Please note that that they have a list of selected vendors you have to work with. All of the vendors are really good but make sure you get quotes from them to ensure you stay within your budget.
