B&O Railroad Museum
Set at the historic site considered to be the birthplace of the American railroad, this museum boasts the world’s oldest and most comprehensive American railroad collection. Groups can rent a variety of spaces, including rail cars, the outdoor pavilion and the main roundhouse.
Baltimore’s newest boutique hotel is loaded with unique event spaces—but we’re especially partial to Topside, the buzzy rooftop restaurant and garden bar—complete with a beautiful view of its historic neighborhood and a carefully curated craft beer menu.
Frederick Douglass-Isaac Meyers Maritime Park Museum
This park and museum honors the legacy of the African Americans who worked in Baltimore’s shipyards in the 1800s and 1900s.
