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.
