Overview

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.

We could not do the museum justice on one abbreviated visit, but even a short time there was most enjoyable. They have a broad selection of art across the ages and the genres, and special exhibits. One exhibit on "Home" was fascinating in its display...More

One of my favorite places on Earth. The Cone Sister built a great collection of Matisse's, Bonnard's Picasso's, Rodin, an Van Gogh or two and more. And a great restaurant, Gertrude's as well.

A great mixture of eras and styles, this is an impressive collection for a city that isn't New York. I recognized some Magritte and Warhol works in the modern section. Sculpture and installations were peppered throughout the museum, which made even hallway treks a venue...More

This museum was great. All of the exhibits are older art; lots of art form the ancient world and from the medieval period. You're allowed to take pictures which is awesome! And it's completely free. You won't regret coming here, but make sure you plan...More

Good small museum. Interesting and very well presented collection of modern art ( 1970 forward) in a modern styled addition. Very strong, newly installed collection of impressionistic art and nice examples of early American furniture and African art.

It's not just that the art is great, but that it is staged so well. Everything is gracefully situated so the eye of the beholder is truly not the only arbiter of beauty.
