  • For me, the highlight was the Cone Collection. It was remarkable and worth seeing. Learning about the Cone sisters was an additional plus. Pay for parking, admission is free.  more »

  • The Cone Collection! If you like impressionist art, fauvism, etc. you have to see this collection. Their contemporary collection is a bit small and doesn't include many women artists. They also have a lot of Christian, especially Catholic works from medieval and Renaissance.
  • Took our students here today for a quick field trip. We focused on the African American artists primarily. Our docent, Helene, was very knowledgable and patient with our kids (day before last day of school!). Sooo much cool stuff to check out! Our kids we're actually bummed we only had an hour to spend here. Next time!
  • Baltimore Museum of Art, the best small museum, with a multi level outdoor sculpture garden, Gertrudes 5 star restaurant on campus, is a must visit AND it's free admission make it available to everyone!
  • Was pleasantly surprised at the art collections! A really awesome place!
  • Went with a small group of Seniors. Easy access, benches to sit on and elevators.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
