Free admission is always welcome and at this fine museum, much appreciated. We are repeat visitors having viewed exhibitions approx. 5 times in the last 2 years. The only weakness is in the knowledge of the seated docents who don't seem able to answer many questions. Even a staff member pointed me to a sculpture when I asked about mosaics.... More

A strange mix of stuff at this museum: 1) religious art from Christian, Islamic and Hindu origins, 2) arms and armor from Europe, 3) ancient Greek and Roman artifacts, including a couple of mummies, and 4) European paintings. Admission is free and you can park on the street for about $1 per hour. My favorite room was the "Chamber of... More

Super easy to find on Charles street 10 blocks straight north of Inner Harbor. This place is FREE! Make sure you go on Thursday night if possible. They are open until 9pm and even the Special Collections are open with no charge. Go to Guest Services and get the audio tour. Really good because the staff wandering around know surprisingly...

This museum was in walking distance from our hotel, it was free(donations accepted). The building itself was beautifully located on N. Charles St. in the Mt. Vernon District of Baltimore. The Architecture of the building was gorgeous with its columns and sculptures, and marble staircases. We visited the Egyptian Mummies, Suits of Armor and I had to see the Faberge'... More

Spent the morning with my wife at Walters Art Museum before heading to an O's game in the afternoon. Use to visit museum long time ago when in Baltimore but had not been there for years...my wife has never been there. First, it is free. There is a little cafe at the entrance if you need coffee or a snack... More

While visiting Baltimore, I attended a party at the Walters Museum. It was a delight. There was music and wine. I toured the exhibits which I found quite comprehensive for a small museum. My family and I also got involved with an exhibit where we were photographed. A great time, a great place,

This free museum was one of the highlights of our short trip to Baltimore. There is a surprising amount of Egyptian pieces, and a great collection of paintings. We initially planned to only spend an hour, but found ourselves there for much longer. The museum is located near a few other sites in the pretty Mount Vernon area, which is... More
