Overview

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.

Had a wonderful visit. Really eclectic collection. Wish there had been more on exhibit in the special exhibits, but they were great and so was their permanent collection. Loved that it was free as well. Definitely a gem and worth revisiting

This is a nice art museum with some wonderful pieces, including several rooms of Matisse. It's free, with a great little restaurant for lunch.

The museum is bright and comfortable, travelling exhibits encourage repeat visits, the staff is very friendly. I love the sculpture garden (and the museum shop). And it' free and open to the public!

Great collections of impressionist and later works. Lots of Matisse. Much of it collected by one pair of spinster sister, the Cones. Wish I had had more time. Free.

Great art, impressive temporary exhibits and very friendly docents. Also, as it was free, a great deal in Baltimore. Do not miss this place.

Specializing in American art, modern, and contemporary, there are some unique collections -- equestrian and sporting art from Britain, for example. The American collection is outstanding. And there are important Europeans as well. Very unusual for a museum this great to be free! A must...More

One of the biggest and best selections of art we've seen in a long time. The Cone sisters rooms and history were amazing along with the many other benefactors the museum is so lucky to have. It puts Baltimore in a whole new perspective.
