The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, is an art museum that was founded in 1914. The BMA's internationally renowned collection of 95,000 objects encompasses more than 1,000 works by Henri Matisse anchored by the Cone Collection of modern art, as well as one of the nation's finest holdings of prints, drawings, and photographs. The galleries currently showcase collections of art from Africa; works by established and emerging contemporary artists; European and American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts; ancient Antioch mosaics; art from Asia, and textiles from around the world.
The 210,000-square-foot (20,000 m2) museum is distinguished by a neoclassical building designed in the 1920s by renowned American architect John Russell Pope and two landscaped gardens with 20th-century sculpture. The museum is located between Charles Village, to the east, Remington, to the south, Hampden, to the west; and south of the Roland Park neighborhoods, immediately adjacent to the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University, though the museum is an independent institution and not affiliated with the university.

The Baltimore Museum of Art is free & is located next to Johns Hopkins University. Please allow at least 4 hours just to see only your favorite sections. Just one block east you will find dozens of good restaurants in case you wish to break your viewing experience with a nice meal. Check the museum website for hours & parking locations & options ( usually $7 for the day ). Have fun. Some special options for children -- ask at the front desk.

Wonderful museum for all ages. A few notable artworks by Botticelli and Degas. Decent collection of Asian, African, American and European works. Rotating exhibitions and sculpture garden are nice as well. The best part is it's free admission!

Beautiful museum. Much more art than I thought would be there. Warhol, Picasso, Matisse and more. I was pleasantly surprised

This museum doesn't hold a very extensive collection but they do have a few areas of strength (e.g. Henri Matisse, Antioch mosaics) and locally themed exhibits; protective glasses on some of its paintings could be annoying if you want to take pictures; no extended hours during the week; no café but there is a restaurant on-site. Overall a positive visiting experience and I felt welcome; would probably rate it higher if I'm more into modern and contemporary art.

Excellent contemporary and modern art exhibits, plus the famous "Cone Collection" (including masterworks by Picasso and Matisse) and a delightful modern sculpture garden make the BMA one of the best museums in Baltimore. While you are there, make time to have brunch, lunch, or dinner at the museum restaurant: Gertrude's at the BMA. There, you can enjoy a delicious (and affordable) meal crafted by John Shields, world-renowned expert on cuisine of the Chesapeake Bay region of Maryland. Great art and great food are what keep me coming back to the BMA. 🙂

The museum itself is an awesome place to visit, however, there is an officer there that made our visit very uncomfortable!! He followed our group through various exhibits.. when asked if he was following us, he replied no, but then he expeditiously removed himself....i rate my experience 1 star...i rate the facility 5 stars

Great museum with a wide variety of art. Art from Asia, Africa and elsewhere as well as a lot of American and European art. Paintings, sculpture, silver, furniture and more. Don't miss the Tiffany trophy for the Preakness, Rodin's The Thinker, amazing mosaics from the 6th century and much more.

Along with The Walters, one of the shining jewels of Baltimore. Free, except for certain special exhibits, and a little bit of something for everyone. Make sure to explore all the nooks and crannies, and if you haven't been in awhile, check it out again: they change the exhibits up more often than I've come to expect from museums. And check out Gertrude's the attached restaurant! Fantastic food overlooking the BMA's sculpture garden.

Fantastic! Interesting collection of art and artifacts. Enjoyed sitting and relaxing outside at the water garden (art). Has a conviently located cafe with nearby parking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They willingly offered help with the interactive exhibits.

Delightful treat for the eyes and ears. I've always enjoyed the exhibitions and they vary displays enough that a monthly visit will offer something new! Plus, the restaurant serves delicious food.

I come here to do some strange meditation in front of the Rothko 'Black Over Reds.' It does something to me. Not sure what, but between this and that wild bead curtain I love this place. Although I don't like most contemporary or multi-media art (excepting photography)

Very clean and organized. Free for everyone!!! Constant rotation of exhibits. No dull moments. Art well kept and restored. Wonderful school enviroment.

Always have an enjoyable experience here with the kids. Museum is free, parking at their lot costs money but you could probably find free street parking if you looked hard enough. The collections they have are pretty great, but I wish they had newer installations more often. Last time we went the sculpture garden was closed even though it looked really well kept and vibrant.

We were dining in Gertrude 's restaurant, located inside the museum. We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Food preparation, service and atmosphere are all very good. The prices are especially good. Wheelchair access is good. We were able to get a parking space for handicapped, but more spaces are needed.

One of my favorite places. I took my girls here for Free Thursdays years ago and now I get to experience it with my grandchildren Also there was a major local exhibit that honor diversity inclusiveness and a better representation of our social dynamics. Lastly lived the children's art work so many budding new artist.

Went for first time a few weeks ago. Did not know what to expect. It is a small Museum. But it has some interesting works there. The parking was great, there is street parking that is pretty cheap. But they also have a lot that is either 5 or $7.

This is a wonderful place to introduce children to art. They showcase a smattering of artwork in each period but what we liked the best for my grandsons was the touchable art. Beautiful gardens too if you need a place to let the kiddos get some air and exercise.

This is a beautiful museum. I was very surprised to find there was no admission fee when I arrived. There is a diverse collection of art including tapestry, sculpture, African art, Asian pieces, contemporary, European and American art. It was well laid out. There is a great restaurant and seating is available in the outdoor sculpture garden for dining. Pleasant way to spend the day.

Fabulous sculpture show of works by African-American Jack Whitten. Had he spent more time in New York instead of a small village in Greece, he would have been far better recognized. His show now moves to the Metropolitan Museum in New York. I hope it will be as well-received as it was here. A fabulously talented painter as well. He deserves much more attention...

Mostly modern art with some classical stuff in one room that seems oddly placed. Museum is free but if you park on site there's a fee. Nice to go once if you're not particularly interested in modern art, just to see it.
