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.

A surprisingly first-class collection of impressionist art in the permanent collection. The African and modern art collections are also nothing to sneeze at. It's one of my favorite places in Baltimore to visit.

This is a great museum because it has a diverse amount of art. There are sculptures and paintings throughout the museum that depict different parts of history. The European sports was one of the highlights of my trip

I could have spent the entire day here! The exhibits are remarkable. You will see Monet's, Picasso's, Rodin's, Van Gogh's and so much more. You will not be fighting crowds so take your time as you peruse this remarkable museum. If you need a break...More

I took the Silver Line Bus from downtown and it was about a 15 minute ride. You pass several other statues and a museum on the way. I love museums but was glad that it was not too overwhelming like the Met in NYC. The...More

I'm a huge fan of Kara Walker and I saw that they had an exhibit of her work at the museum. Unfortunately, the Walker exhibit was more of a showcase than a full-fledged example of her work, but the teaser worked. I walked around and...More

The BMA often goes unappreciated. The building,sculpture gardens and collections are as good as any other city's. It is free to the public ( except for certain special exhibits). The restaurant (Gertrude's) is very good for brunch or lunch. Make sure to get a reservation....More

It has a sense of diversity that is laid out nicely. I like smaller museums in that you can appreciate the art without a marathon. The architecture of the building was especially interesting. There were people of all ages and they seemed to enjoy themselves....More

I've been to a lot of art museums, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the collection even beyond the signature Cone collection - fascinating ancient tile mosaics, early Renaissance paintings, contemporary art, and everything in between. Compare early madonna icons to Matisse's...More
