Welcome to the Baltimore Museum of Art, or BMA for short. This highly popular art museum is located at Johns Hopkins University, in a grand historic building designed in the 1920s by John Russell Pope. This museum is free to visit and offers guests a look at 210,000 square feet of Matisses, Picassos, Impressionist Works, Sculpture Gardens, and more.

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. The galleries also showcase the following;

  • European Masterpieces
  • American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts
  • Abstract Expressionism, Minimalist sculpture, and Conceptual Art
  • 15th- through 19th-century prints, drawings, and photographs

Your group will have plenty to look at and immerse yourselves in during your visit, and you can do so with a self-guided tour, a school tour, or a themed adult tour. There are also International Gallery Workshops available that last 90 minutes to 3 hours. Before you go be sure you visit the BMA Shop to pick up any educational materials or souvenirs you may want, and if you work up an appetite stop for a bite to eat at Gertrude's.
