For: fabulous impressionist art and more

The Baltimore Museum of Art, one of America’s best museums, offers visitors a hefty 90,000 works of art, including the largest collection of Matisse paintings in the world — and you can see it all without spending a penny. Admire masterpieces by Cezanne, Van Gogh, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and many others. Then check out the museum’s fine collection of decorative arts. Perhaps best for last, explore the museum’s extensive sculpture gardens, a century’s worth of creativity. The museum’s lovely restaurant, Gertrude’s, offers fine outdoor dining overlooking the sculpture garden in summer.
