The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is home to an internationally renowned collection of 19th-century, modern, and contemporary art. Founded in 1914 with a single painting, the BMA today has 90,000 works of art-including the largest holding of works by Henri Matisse in the world.* The museum is currently undergoing an unprecedented $28 million renovation to provide visitors with a more welcoming environment and more imaginative and inspiring encounters with art. The BMA is remaining open throughout the multi-year project so that visitors can enjoy its outstanding selection of European and American painting and sculpture from the 17th through 20th centuries and the newly reinstalled Contemporary Wing with 14 galleries showcasing the art of our time. Two beautifully landscaped gardens display an array of 20th-century sculpture that is an oasis in the city. The museum's 100th anniversary will be celebrated in November 2014 with the reopening of the grand historic entrance designed by John Russell Pope and a beautiful new presentation of the museum's distinguished collection of American art. Subsequent reopenings include expanded galleries for the African and Asian art collections and a new learning and creativity center that will open in 2015. Since 2006, the BMA has eliminated general admission fees so that everyone can enjoy the power of art. * Many of the BMA's works by Matisse are part of a special exhibition traveling to museums in Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and San Antonio in 2013 and 2014. If you are visiting to see a specific artwork, please call the BMA Box Office to make sure it will be on view.

What a source of pride for Baltimore! The Cone collection alone is worth the trip! If Matisse "speaks to you", you will be in heaven. Other European masters of modern art abound! The contemporary wing and permanent collection is fabulous and fun! check out :Erwin...More

Wonderful Impressionist collection; large impressive modern art collection. European masters, and a beautiful sculpture garden with fountains. The global textile collection spans centuries and cultures. Much more. And don't miss the wonderful inhouse restaurant, Gertrudes.

The museum has been a favorite for my children and me for 2 decades now. It's located in a beautiful, historic neighborhood between midtown and downtown Baltimore City. On-street parking is nearby but tricky to get. Because of good Karma, we always get a good...More

The building is beautiful in itself, and the collection, simply great. The halls and galleries are quite spacious, airy and with the right light. In general the atmosphere of the museum is fairly quiet (quite the opposite, unfortunately, the National Gallery in DC which is...More

The BMA was better than I had expected. I especially liked the contemporary art and the Rodin and Barye sculptures. The sculpture garden outside was also beautiful. Much of the artwork is organized into common motifs with informative signage, especially in the contemporary section. There...More

We came from York to spend and hour and didn't leave until it closed. While The Cone exhibits are worth traveling from anywhere to experience the breadth and quality of the impressionist works, the entire museum has paintings, artifacts, furniture, glass, sculpture, textiles, and ceramics...More

I really love this place. It's great for a quick hour or two fix of great art. Not as big or broad a collection as the Walter's, but plenty of "greatest hits" art pieces. On the non-art side, the museum's restaurant has a FANTASTIC brunch...More
