Wow - what a great museum. Free entry. Absolutely taken aback by the quality and quantity of the exhibits, from Egyptian stuff to Renaissance paintings. Amazed that there weren't more people there.

Not a museum person but this museum is different. It has art but it engages adults and child by making the displays entertaining instead of the dry descriptions and seriousness of most art musuems. The building is also quite beautiful with a hidden castle like stairwell where are super worn from years of footsteps. The asian collection is closed though... More

Unusual, one-of-a kind works from historic eras. A series of eclectic, eye-absorbing collections in mid-town, architecturally unique Mt. Vernon neighborhood.

Even if this museum weren't free, it would be on a must-see list for Baltimore-- coupled with the fact that it is free, the quality of the work in this museum and its curation really justifies it being on every museum-goers list! Get here!

The Walters is a fantastic museum. Not overwhelming, very personal experience, great for kids, families, and true art aficionados, as well! New exhibits added, as well as classic exhibits to see again. All of us really enjoyed being there. A great Baltimore 'old family' contribution to our great city!!!

The regular exhibits amaze and the traveling exhibits enthrall. Kids will find programs educational in a fun way. Well worth a visit even if you only have time for a few exhibits.

This museum is a gem, and it's even fun for kids with its awesome collection of armor. I personally love its renowned collection of illuminated manuscripts best -- each work is a masterpiece in miniature.

Up the road from our hotel. What a surprise. Floors and buildings full of most amazing art, porcelain, jewellery, pottery, together with family anecdotes.

It is always a pleasure to visit the Walters Art Museum! With such a vast, wide-ranging collection, there is something for everyone and its variety of antiquities from Rome and Greece, Asia Minor and the Near East, Central America and beyond is second only to the Metropolitan in New York or places like the Louvre and the British Museum in...
