About Us

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.

  • As two people involved in MANY previous weddings, finding a place where our immediate friends and family hadn't had THEIR weddings at before was really hard. While we knew someone who knew someone who had their wedding at BMI, again- none of our immediate circle had which was important to us. Ms. Angie showed us around and gave a very helpful packet of information. The cost for the time was very reasonable and everything that's included is REALLY going to wow our guests. Again, we CANNOT. WAIT.

    Meghan, we're thrilled you chose the BMI for your big day and we look forward to working with you over the next year!
