Baltimore Museum of Art, a 1929 building modeled after a Roman temple, holds more than 90,000 pieces of 19th-century, modern, and contemporary art, plus the largest collection of Henri Matisse's works in the world. Some of the museum's highlights include works by Picasso, van Gogh, Renoir, Matisse, and Cézanne. You'll also find objects from ancient Egypt; masks, figures, and ceremonial weapons of old African tribes; and mosaics from ancient Antioch. Browse through works by the Mayas and Aztecs, including ceramics, dancing figures, and golden ritual objects, dating as far back as 2500 BCE. Don't forget to take a walk through the museum's gardens, which showcase 20th-century sculptures.

Baltimore Museum of Art reviews
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.

Tons of different genres, and a beautiful building all on its own, this is a must-see in Baltimore. It's completely free, and the paid parking there is fairly cheap compared to other downtown parking lots. The layout is a little confusing and weird, but otherwise a wonderful place to visit! Due to the pandemic, we reserved a time slot in advance, and the check in process was very quick and easy. Word to the wise, if you want to eat at their restaurant, definitely make reservations. We did not, and when we tried to go there after our museum tour, they were all booked up. But otherwise, it was a great visit.
We absolutely loved our visit to the Baltimore Art Museum. As out of town visitors, we chose to spend extra to see the Joan Mitchell exhibit and we were very glad we did. Additionally, the Guarding the Art exhibit was a definite highlight. I love that BMA values the contributions of their security guards. If we live locally, we would definitely become members, especially as the museum is free to the community. I wish the Portland Art Museum would follow suit.
