    Amazing art museum with wonderful staff and friendly security. So many different exhibits to please everyone's tastes. Paintings, sculpture, artifacts etc. I was lucky to catch the Majolica exhibit on the last day.

    So much creativity and inspiration in this unusual museum. I especially liked the many quotes displayed. Don’t skip the gift shop (which I normally would). It is fun and special and I even bought things that were fun and reasonably priced. The folks who run the shop are also a pleasure.

    Baltimore Museum of Art is located in Johns Hopkins. It’s free entry and the staffs are very helpful. The paintings are good too. I would visit it.

    Nice exhibits, plenty of space, a lot of different options. Our kids loved the lab space, planetarium show with Sesame Street characters and contraption mechanism in 1st floor. A world map painted was not correct though showing Eastern Europe in Asia.

    If you are the least bit interested in spies or espionage then you'll want to visit here. On display are all kinds of equipment the U.S. used in various wars. Most of which I'm sure you never heard of or saw. You can request a guide.

    Nothing ‘flashy’ at the museum; but enough interesting elements and memorabilia to make it worth a visit. Even real devotees of Ruth will learn new things about him

    We had a chance to visit the Children's Museum during out recent visit to Baltimore. We brought along a first grade family member, and would have to say that is about the correct age for this museum. There are three flours of activity - all of it interactive. The kids play together but the staff does want the chidlren under adult supervision at all times. Restaurants, ships, Eygptian Tombs, and even a small soccer pitch. The highlght might be a three-floor net that the students can climb, with the option of climbing down or a two-story slide.

    Fun for kids - not much for parents to do but watch and wish they were young.

    My first time here. For Black Americans, this is heart breaking experience as the museum also displays historical accounts, artifacts, and pictures of lynching (men, women, children) and slavery. The hateful, evil, despicable behavior of whites will forever go unmatched. Study every picture and read every line.

    It is very hard to imagine the size and scope of these vessels without being there. I knew they were massive but being there makes one realize the vastness of it all

    This museum is a gem located in Downtown Baltimore dedicated to the history of enslaved people with a focus on the mid-Atlantic states. The staff and educational programs are fabulous.

    The museum is just a few steps from the Centre Street light rail station and near a number of other cultural institutions just north of downtown Baltimore. It's easy to get to and quite inexpensive. It also had an eclectic mix of exhibits that were fascinating to see. It was one of the most enjoyable places I went in Baltimore.

    This is truly a hidden gem in Baltimore. You will have to go out of your way to find it and you may have to call ro get in the gate, but you will never find anything close on the east coast. The John W. Brown is an OPERATIONAL WWII cargo ship. The volunteers onboard have not only read about the ship but are proficient in sailing her several times a year. If you have any interest in engineering, be sure to visit the engine room and listen as the volunteer docents describe this operating triple expansion steam engine. We spent half the day talking to these incredible volunteers. The museum spaces were suprisingly well laid out for this restored ship. They outlined the basics about the sailors onboard and the ships history. I cannot recommend enough....worth the trip to visit!!!

    A very interesting tour of the home of Edgar Allan Poe. Its more of a look and see than anything else because you can't really touch much since everything is hundreds of years old. It gives you a perspective on how things have changed. People of that time in history were very small, rooms and beds are child size, great place for short people to feel like an Amazon.
