COVID-19 Closure


The BMA Remains Closed Due to COVID-19

With COVID-19 cases remaining high across the country, The Baltimore Museum of Art remains closed at this time. Please check back in the next few weeks for our planned reopening date.

We will miss sharing our exhibitions and collections in person with you, but we are hard at work on plans to reopen.

Our Sculpture Garden will remain open to the public on Wednesdays-Sundays from 10 a.m. to dusk so long as there is no inclement weather.

The BMA Shop is closed at this time. Shop online any time at shop.artbma.org. Shipments may take 1-3 weeks to arrive.

In accordance with City and State requirements, masks are required in the building and the garden at all times.

It pains us to close our galleries again, as we’ve heard from so many visitors what a valuable respite they offer during these difficult times. We hope in doing our part to slow the spread of the virus in the community now that we will be able to open our museum in full in the new year.

We will continue to offer digital experiences to audiences everywhere. Below are some of the highlights.
