  • The museum itself is an awesome place to visit, however, there is an officer there that made our visit very uncomfortable!! He followed our group through various exhibits.. when asked if he was following us, he replied no, but then he expeditiously removed himself....i rate my experience 1 star...i rate the facility 5 stars
  • 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.
  • Wonderful museum for all ages. A few notable artworks by Botticelli and Degas. Decent collection of Asian, African, American and European works. Rotating exhibitions and sculpture garden are nice as well. The best part is it's free admission!
  • Great museum with a wide variety of art. Art from Asia, Africa and elsewhere as well as a lot of American and European art. Paintings, sculpture, silver, furniture and more. Don't miss the Tiffany trophy for the Preakness, Rodin's The Thinker, amazing mosaics from the 6th century and much more.
  • Beautiful museum. Much more art than I thought would be there. Warhol, Picasso, Matisse and more. I was pleasantly surprised
