Now you’ll have even more time to linger among The Baltimore Museum of Art collection, visit ticketed exhibitions, and browse gifts at The BMA Shop. As part of the Endowment for the Future, launched in 2020, the BMA identified five ways to achieve museum-wide change. These goals included offering free admission for special exhibitions, raising salaries for all staff members, and increasing access to art by expanding open hours.
With the help of generous funding and support, the BMA is able to move forward with extended Museum hours one evening per week—a step they hope will help eliminate barriers that may prevent community members from visiting. On Thursday evenings only, stop by the East Lobby to pick up BMA Makers, a free art-making kit designed for adults inspired by works on view. Reserve your night at the Museum. (https://artbma.org/
Extended Evening Hours are generously supported by The Rouse Company Foundation.
The Baltimore Museum of Art connects art to Baltimore and Baltimore to the world, embodying a commitment to artistic excellence and social equity in every decision from art presentation, interpretation, and collecting—creating a museum welcoming to all.
Founded in 1914 with a single painting, the Baltimore Museum of Art is home to 95,000 works, spanning the art of ancient Egypt to some of the most significant works of today. Our internationally renowned collection of 19th-century, modern, and contemporary art includes the largest holding of Henri Matisse’s works in a public institution, alongside important examples of artistic expression from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, and the Pacific Islands.
