The marble towels were most impressive.I will frequently visit Baltimore just to visit this museum and partake in enjoying its events.. I am... More

Eye-popping collection -- it is amazing what a huge collection of important work the father and son collected. Make sure you have enough time to see the whole museum. Well worth the trip to Baltimore just for this museum.

I was very impressed with the selection at this museum! It's complimentary, and it's located in the heart of a beautiful neighborhood, Mt. Vernon. It's worth an afternoon visit! We weren't able to go on Monday, since it was closed.

Excellent collection in the heart of Historic Baltimore, a lovely mansion like setting with a perfect contemporary addition. For the DC area this offers an otherwise hard to find Byzantine collection. Also hosts some brilliant special exhibits.Don't visti Baltimore without stopping in here - Bravo!

It is a very interesting museum. It has a fabulous collection and it is free. Even the audio guide is free. If you love art, it is a two days visit.

Medieval historical visit at its finest. Armor room is very classy and of much interest to children of all ages. Documents, manuscripts, and clerical history dating to Mesopotamia.. GO.

A beautiful museum with diverse exhibits from different parts of the world. There is so much to see and learn. If you have time visit the Peabody library (located across the street).

While not the equal of the Met in NYC or the AI of Chicago, the Walters has a superior collection for a mid sized city, and in this case one that is truly impressive in ancient items. And it has free admission. The museum consists of two buildings - the original italianate palazzo from the fin de siecle period and... More

Loved this museum. This is truly one of Baltimore's gems! I visited this museum many times with my myself and with family friends. There is so much to see and learn. I normally spend about two and half hours. The museum is FREE. Street Parking is available for a fee.
