Best Non-art Museum

Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture

803 E. Pratt St., (443) 263-1800,

Non-art" is a bit of a misnomer here, because the Reggie more than holds its own as an art museum. From its recent From Process to Print: Graphic Works by Romare Bearden to Material Girls: Contemporary Black Women Artists opening next February, the Reggie adds a welcome dose of contemporary African-American artists to Baltimore's institutional visual arts landscape. What makes the museum so much more is built into its very mission: to create dialogues between arts and culture, between history and the here and now, and in the process serve as a vital intellectual and social hub for documenting and exploring the rich and varied African-American experience in the city and state. In this ambition, the museum has no peer.
