Learn About Baltimore's Top Museums

From culturally significant to family-friendly or just downright quirky, Baltimore’s museums cover the spectrum. Learn about the journey of Baltimore’s African American community at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture and at the National Great Blacks In Wax Museum. Celebrate sports history at the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum. Or gaze in wonder at the extensive collection of locomotives and rolling stock at the B&O Railroad Museum.

For art lovers, no visit to Baltimore would be complete with savoring the world’s largest collection of works by Henri Matisse at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 55 centuries of art at The Walters Art Museum (both offering free general admission) or the fantastical works of self-taught artists at the American Visionary Art Museum.

Experience the region's rich history at the Maryland Historical Society or the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House.
