Walters Art Museum
Baltimore's premier educational institution, the Walters Art Museum is one of the few museums in the world to present a panorama of art that ranges from the third millennium B.C. to the 20th century. The Walters Art Museum has fascinating treasures such as mummies, armor, old master paintings, and art nouveau jewelry as well as a myriad of more contemporary creations.
Every year, thousands of travelers visit the Baltimore Basilica to worship and tour its magnificent grounds. Guided tours are offered, although you may also visit on your own to see the National Shrine, the museum on-site, and the Pope John Paul II Prayer Garden. The Basilica is open daily from 8:30 am-4:30 pm for touring and guided tours are available weekdays at 9 am, 11 am, and 1 pm. Guided tours include the undercroft and upper church, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel, Crypt, Museum, and the Pope John Paul II Prayer Garden.
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower
The Bromo Selzer Arts Tower, otherwise known as the Emerson Tower, is a 15-story, 88-meter landmark clock tower that sits on the northeast corner of Eutaw in downtown Baltimore. It sits near the Hippodrome Theater, Baltimore Convention Center, and the University of Maryland, giving it a perfect location for artists and city guests. The historic tower today houses art studios and gallery spaces for resident artists, photographers, writers, jewelers, and architects. It serves as a space to create, exhibit, interact with and sell to the public, and it also works to 'bring 1911 Baltimore back to life'.
Baltimore Museum of Art
This major cultural destination is recognized for engaging diverse audiences through dynamic exhibitions and innovative educational and community outreach programs. The internationally renowned collection of 95,000 objects inside encompasses over 1,000 works by Henri Matisse and is anchored by the famed Cone Collection of Modern Art. You will also find one of the nation's finest holdings of prints, drawings, and photographs. This highly popular art museum is located at Johns Hopkins University, in a grand historic building designed in the 1920s by John Russell Pope.
American Visionary Art Museum
One of the most unique and entertaining stops you can make during your Baltimore visit is the American Visionary Art Museum, the popular art museum located in the Federal Hill neighborhood. This small museum provides a presentation and display of 'outsider art', the artists involved being self-taught and more out-of-the-box than most. The exhibits within are rotating and quite unusual, giving your group a chance to glimpse modern American art while still enjoying themselves.
