  • 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.
  • The staff were very friendly and helpful. The information posted in the exhibition area provided helpful information for people with different levels of appreciation for arts from those periods. The display for the Cone sisters’ house was a wonderful touch.
  • Great for all ages, kids have a supervised art room and the exhibits are top notch. Small but definitely worth the trip and it's free.
  • The BMA is always a rewarding experience. The collection covers ancient to contemporary art. The temporary exhibits keep the Museum “fresh”. The decorative collection includes many signature Baltimore craftsmen and styles. There is Asian, African, European art, all in a very accessible format. I almost forgot to mention the incredible Cone Collection which includes many Matisses and his contemporaries....and so much more!
  • Cory loved the museum. He had a great time! The staff was friendly, and very helpful.
