IF IT’ S FREE, IT’ S FOR ME

Two of Bal­ti­more’s best mu­se­ums — the Wal­ters Art Mu­seum and Bal­ti­more Mu­seum of Art (BMA) — cost ab­so­lutely noth­ing to get in. The BMA boasts a fan­tas­tic col­lec­tion, in­clud­ing the world’s largest hold­ings of work by Henri Matisse, while the Wal­ters con­tains a sprawl­ing as­sem­blage of art rang­ing from an­cient Egyp­tian mum­mies to Art Nou­veau jew­elry. Bonus: My fa­vorite mu­seum in town might be the Amer­i­can Vi­sion­ary Art Mu­seum (above), the only such place in Amer­ica show­cas­ing “out­sider” or un­trained artists. Ad­mis­sion to the mu­seum isn’t free, but there’s no charge to browse its in­com­pa­ra­ble gift shop, which alone is worth a visit.
