Owner description: 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.

Really wanted to take my Texan niece there during the furlough, but we only had Monday available and they were closed!

“Small Museum with Big Impact”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

I was here for a Matisse sketches exhibit that I really enjoyed. Their Rodin models are great. The mosaics are beautiful. It's such a relaxing stroll. I'm not in love with the contemporary section, but that's because I'm not in love with contemporary art.

My daughter and I spent the afternoon exploring the museum and sculpture garden. Fun and educational. What a great day. Would not recommend the restaurant, however.

“Fantastic and Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Wonderful museum experience. Great impressionism collection and well-mounted and interpreted collection. Really too much for one visit and several days are recommended. Parking is convenient and the gift shop is wonderful.
