Fodor's Review

Works by Matisse, Picasso, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, and Monet are among the 90,000 paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts on exhibit at this impressive museum near Johns Hopkins University. Particular strengths include an encyclopedic collection of postimpressionist paintings donated to the museum by the Cone sisters, Baltimore natives who were pioneer collectors of early-20th-century art. The museum also owns the world's second-largest collection of Andy Warhol works, and many pieces of 18th- and 19th-century American painting and decorative arts. The museum's neoclassical main building was designed by John Russell Pope, the architect of the National Gallery in Washington. An ongoing, $28 million renovation promises a new, interactive exhibition space, a renovated visitor's entrance, and a completely reworked contemporary wing. The museum remains open during the renovation, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2015. From Gertrude's, the museum restaurant, you can look out at 20th-century sculpture displayed in two landscaped gardens.
