  • We spent several hours exploring the museum. It has such a range of pieces to view. The snack bar is also very reasonably priced

  • Lovely destination for tourists and citizens on Baltimore. There are many truly stunning art pieces here. Despite none of them being extremely famous, the sheer age and intricacy of some of the pieces is insanely cool. Fantastic museum, really really lovely place
  • Excellent museum with diverse collection of art from various centuries in a variety of mediums. Price was perfect at FREE and staff and docents were friendly and helpful. Currently showcasing a type of pottery from the United Kingdom with vivid colors courtesy of a lead based glaze that highlights the health impact of those who worked on the pieces.
