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.

  • Great museum with lots of interesting exhibits! I especially enjoyed their collection of contemporary art. This is a well-maintained and considerably large, and admission is free. More interactiveness would have been a nice touch, but other than that, this is a good place to spend an hour or two. I would definitely recommend visiting if you’re looking for something to do in the area.
  • Lovely building full of amazing art collections. The Cone Collection is exquisite. The staff are friendly and helpful here. The gift shop has a great selection of unique gift items
