    My corporation has rented the entire museum several times for parties with access to the whole museum. The facilitates are very nice, modern, and roomy. Not being from Baltimore, I was able to get a feel for Baltmore industry history. It is a nice place to visit and we have been back to visit on our own.

    Great Experience. Went to a wedding there and a field trip with my children. Each time was an educational trip into the past. The kids say it was one of the best field trips they have ever been on.

    I have to preface this by saying that I'm an engineer who loves looking at antiquated machinery. This museum has a wide variety of machinery, from ticket punchers to typesetting machines to meat grinders to a belt-driven machine shop, much of it over 100 years old and still in working condition! This is a great place to go geek out. Also it's right next to Little Havana, so if you're not as nerdy as me you can go get your drink on.

    The museum of industry is great, other than the fact that they pay their teachers so little that most of their teachers are forced to leave within three months. It is not that they don't have the money either, it is a social/political problem. Please if you go- let someone know that these teachers should get paid more then the absolute minimum.
