Founded in 1844, the Maryland Historical Society is the longest running cultural institution in the state. Over the years we have accquired an unparalleled collection with over 350,000 objects and seven million books and documents relating to Maryland history. It is a collection that connects all of us to America's past. 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. Enoch Pratt's 1844 mansion anchors the north wing and a state of the art, three story gallery facility sits on the south wing. Two outdoor gardens complement the structures, providing rare green space in Baltimore city! Equally rare in the city is a 50 car parking lot. Read less

The Maryland Historical Society was the greatest place to have a wedding. We got married outside in the courtyard and had the reception in France Hall, which was a great multi-purpose/event room that was easy to use and adapt to our purposes. The cocktail hour was in the exhibit hall outside of the reception space where guests could go around and look at the cool stuff in the maritime section. Staff was extremely friendly, if not super easy to get in contact with (major budget cuts meant people were no longer full time, but would respond within acceptable time period) and had an on-site coordinator/assistant there for the rehearsal and day of, even though that wasn't mentioned in the contract. When it looked like it might rain and we wouldn't be able to use the courtyard, they offered to open up another part of the museum to our guests to compensate. They also had a decent amount of parking available to our guests, rare in the middle of Baltimore. Overall I loved having my wedding in such a special place and if I was going to spend a lot of money on a venue, I'm glad it went to a non-profit that could really use the funds.
