Description: The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is home to an internationally renowned...
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.

Wonderful Art Museum in a very beautiful setting. Parking outside and used to be free on Thursdays. Great resturant Gertrudes attached. Worth a visit when in Baltimore.

Really diverse collection. The recent renovations are sensitive and enhance the collection. I was really impressed by the diversity of the exhibits on show. My visit corresponded with a really impressive downpour and as such many families resorted to the Museum for an indoor activity. There was plenty to see and do and the staff welcomed children. The Cone collection... More

Went on a Friday afternoon with 4 children. Wonderful collection of art, very friendly staff and a real surprise- the sculpture garden outside was just breathtakingly beautiful and an oasis on a hot June day. Can't believe the museum was free, a wonderful surprise and just a jewel of a museum.

The BMA's renovation is a great success. Loved the new/expanded African Art exhibits. The large Tiffany glass window has been moved to a much better place where it can get the attention it deserves. The Museum Shop has been updated, too. And it doesn't seem so crowded, although it appear that it may actually have more items. Great place for... More

I would never describe my sons as modern art lovers, but this museum was very interesting for them; so much so that they asked if we could go again one day. I was not expecting that. I just hoped we could have a decent day and they'd learn something. The building is beautiful and the staff is helpful.

This is a beautiful building. Lots of wonderful modern art. My favourite museum in the world is Musee d'Orsay in Paris. My favourite art in there is the Degas ballerina sculptures. Lo and behold, this museum has a few of them. And you could get up close. And nobody else there. What an experience!

Such a nice surprise! Lovely collection from different periods. Friendly staff and neat lay out focusing on a few key local people and collections. Plus it was free admission and parking cost was cheap. Directions were easy to follow and find from I-83. Would definitely revist.
