The Maryland Center for History and Culture — formerly the Maryland Historical Society — is the oldest continuously operating nonprofit cultural institution in the state. The MCHC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that houses a collection of 7 million books, documents, manuscripts, and photographs, and 350,000 objects in its museum and library located in Baltimore.
Our campus is located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore, just two blocks from the iconic Washington Monument. The campus sprawls across an entire city block and is a combination of classic Baltimore architecture and high modern design. Two outdoor gardens complement the structures, providing rare green space in Baltimore city! Equally rare in the city is our free secure parking lot.

John and Jeff's June wedding
My husband, John, and I got married at The Maryland Historical Society. Turned our interest to the place upon a recommendation of Scott Rubin by a client of mine. So glad she did. So glad we did!
The place and Scott are first-rate! A gay wedding, you say? Not even an eyelid was lifted upon our inquiring with Scott. In fact, we are the Maryland Historical Society's first gay wedding. From moment one, Scott was professional, kind, calm, warm and sincere and very thorough in a comforting way. We were in good hands from everyone at the Society the whole experience.
The place? It is not a venue that takes your money and adequately, and antiseptically, plans for and sets up and works your event. The employees acted as if they were interested and invested so we think they were- always welcoming and professional. Moreover, MdHS is a place of history- full of proof of strife and success, talents and tribulations and triumphs. It was a good and natural choice for John and me. Also, the outside courtyard and France Hall, the provided staging rooms, and secure parking lot served our needs and guests (about 65 people) beautifully and comfortably. The talented folks at Chefs Expressions added to the event and day most successfully!
John and I are very thankful and grateful to and for Scott Rubin for his leadership and guidance and friendship. We, of course, fully endorse and recommend the Maryland Historical Society for your wedding!!
Kindly, Jeff and JohnSent on 09/26/2019

Best experience of my life
The Maryland Historical Society was the absolute best venue for my wedding. The mix of modern and historical was awesome and my guests loved it. Scott Rubin and the entire staff was fantastic to work with and made it a painless and effortless experience that we'll never forget!Sent on 09/24/2019

Perfect space for our day!
This was the hardest decision for my husband and I to make. We went back and forth between 2 venues and he asked me once night "where do you see us getting married"? So, I said tearfully "Maryland Historical Society". Best decision ever! Scott Rubin and his team were so so incredible to deal with. I, of course was slightly crazy and frantic at times, and he reassured me it would all be worked out and be done to our guidelines. He was there from beginning of the day through the end! Our guests loved the space and thought it was incredibly unique. (Cocktail hour was in the "mastodon room"! Parking was onsite and all of our other vendors had an easy loading process, which made our day less stressful. Plus, the neighborhood has a ton of dining, hotels and things to do. So our guests who traveled were able to take some time to explore Baltimore. Pricing was great to fit our budget! Our photographers had a blast shooting around the museum as well. Couldn't be happier with how our wedding turned out!Sent on 10/16/2019
