Being New York snobs, we didn't expect a museum that would rate up there with the Met or any other NY museum. We were happy to be proven wrong. Imagine, a free art museum (a small charge for parking), that is in the upper stratosphere...More

This museum contains some stunning items including roman mosaics, period furniture, and some classic paintings. The rooms are spotless. Clean restrooms. Excellent gift shop. It is adjacent to the Johns Hopkins campus so one can combine a trip to both.

A self-sustaining museum with a respectable holding of most major art schools is rare. Baltimore is fortunate to have a museum with world-class breadth. Better, the curators use that breadth to mount small, highly focused temporary exhibits. Now, for example, they have a display of...More
