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.

Baltimore Museum of Art would easily justify a visit to the City alone. It has probably the world's finest collection of Matisse paintings and sculptures (thanks to the Cone sisters), and displays an excellent range from Old Masters to contemporary, all of a uniformingly high...More

I was delighted and quite moved to find Mark Rothko's Red over Black. The American Wing is extraordinary. The BMA owns a stunning collection of folk American quilts. Treat yourself to a delicious lunch/dinner at Gertrudes on the main floor. Exceptional boutique museum.

This museum has a unique collection of art that is rather unique, with things from the Renaissance to the Modern era. It is also well curated and well placed beside JHU.

Great day seeing Baltimore sights I've never seen before. Museum is free and a nice day's visit. Can be seen in 2-3 hours. Easy parking on street, cheaper than downtown, or there is parking garage at JHU.
