My spouse and I visited the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) on a Saturday afternoon in early June 2018. The museum is open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm on Wednesday through Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday). General admission is free because of a grant...More
Going to the Baltimore Museum of Art is always a treat. The Cone collection is world famous and recognized as a destination art exhibit. In addition, the other galleries are beautifully outfitted and most enjoyable. The restaurant is quite good and serves a fabulous Sunday...More
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
The permanent collections are spectacular. The Cone sisters collection especially.
We spent about 3 hrs there. The museum was free parking cost $7 in the museum lot.

I’m sorry you did not enjoy your visit to The Baltimore Museum of Art. The European collection is known for its masterpieces by Sir Anthony van Dyck and Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin. The Cone Collection of Modern art displays one of the finest public collections of works...More

I thought it had a decent sampling of French Impressionist paintings ... as noted by others, the erudite and savvy art collecting Cone sisters brought a few masterpieces to Baltimore. However, I am from Philadelphia and here we have (between the Philly Museum of Art, the Barnes Collection, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, etc.) the very FINEST collection of European and American Impressionist, Post Impressionist, Fauvist and Modernist paintings in the Western Hemisphere ... outranking even New York and Washington ... second only to the city of Paris itself!

1) Closest known is Hopkins Inn on St. Paul Street, about 1/4 mile to the NE (can be walked). 2) Inn at the Colonnade, yes, is we think the closest quality lodging at about 1/2 mile distant at the north end of Johns Hopkins Univ. 3) Motel 6 is south on 19-1/2 Street off Maryland Ave. Enjoy the Museum, it's great.
