Parents Anniversary, from GLEN ALLEN, VA

Held my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party at the Maryland Historical Society and could not have been happier. Great facilities and great service. Scott Rubin was fantastic to work with and made everything possible. Will certainly use again.

Directors Retreat - Lewis Museum, from Baltimore, MD

We recently had the pleasure of using the Maryland Historical Society as the venue for a directors retreat. The space was beautiful and perfectly suited our needs. The staff was very accommodating, attentive and friendly. We really appreciate the work they put in to help make our retreat a success. MDHS was a fantastic location for our event.

Great space for events!, from BALTIMORE, MD

We held our annual genealogy event there, and I couldn't have asked for a better space. They were friendly, flexible, and accommodating. The space is beautiful and we had many compliments on our choice of location. Thanks MdHS!

Visit Baltimore - Member Services and Events Manager, from Baltimore, MD

Visit Baltimore hosted a Baltimore Magazine Advertising Educational Seminar, which was held at the Maryland Historical Society. Our members were very pleased with the venue and were even offered to take a tour of the venue at the conclusion of our seminar.

Product Development Manager, from Gairthersburg, MD

The Maryland Historic Society building and courtyard made the perfect setting for an outdoor furniture photo shoot. The grounds were clean and tidy, and the staff were very welcoming and helpful - they even helped us find parking for our oversized delivery truck. The photoshoot turned out great! Would recommend their professional staff.
