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.

No visit to Baltimore should be complete without a visit to the Baltimore museum of art. Featuring a diverse collection, there is something for nearly everyone. I could have easily spent more time here and will definitely return.

Another great art museum that just happens to be free to see. Complimentary coat room was a nice feature. Enjoyed all the old masters and contemporary art. 2 Faberge eggs were featured and it was awesome to see them. Great museum.

We came to see a particular small exhibit of narrative quilts by Baltimore artist Stephen Towns. It was a visually and intellectually engaging exhibit of quilts that told the story of the Nat Turner Rebellion. The quilts were painterly -- which makes sense as Towns...More

I found the museum to be nice, low key, and enjoyable. It's a small collection in comparison to some of the neighboring cities, but you can spend a full day here if you wanted to. There are limited hours, but it is a free collection...More

In many years of visiting art museums throughout the Northeast I’ve somehow been ignoring the Baltimore Museum of Art. This has been my loss, as I realized recently. BAM is a delightful place made accessible to all by its every day free admission policy. Although...More

Yes. Till January 29. There is an extra charge. Museum is great whether you see that exhibit or not. Some very fine Matisse in the permanent collection too.
