You can reach this museum on the free Baltimore Circulator and there was no admission charge. Audio tours were also free. Well worth visiting. Wide variety of exhibits from manuscript making to Islamic art.

The Walters is a must for art lovers but dress appropriately. It was very cold on a very hot July day. We went outside at one point to warm up. There is an interesting audio tour of the square around Mt. Vernon you can pick up at the front desk. There is a printed flyer that gives the tour stops.... More

Another good museum in Baltimore, like the BMA the admission is free, which makes it an affordable trip in the city.

This museum contained an amazing collection of artworks from various time periods. Best of all, it was very kid-friendly. Children's books were stashed throughout the museum so the kids could read while adults browsed. We spent an hour in the family fun center, where very friendly staff guided our children through an art project. And the whole thing was FREE... More

This place is HUGE! The extent and quality of this collection is just astonishing. The cabinets of curiosities and portrait rooms were my favorites, as they are definitely representative of the period. There is a little bit of everything from all over the world, but definitely more religious art than anything else.

Free admission to a very nice museum in Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. Current exhibition --Rye to Raphael--is a very interesting visual story of the Walters family collection. Some parallels to the Barnes Collection. Very much worth a visit.

If you love fine art then this is a must visit while in Charm City. Parking can be a bit dicey but drive around the block a few times and use your parallel parking skills from Hight School. Wonderful collection. No place to sit and view in the new Modern Art section so do that first as you will be... More

I was very impressed by this museum, even though the collection isn't what I'm usually looking for in my museum choices. It's a wonderful free museum with an amazing collection of very old art. We spent 2 hours, which was sufficient, and we enjoyed the experience! TIP: Go on a Sunday and get free parking right on the street in... More
