Walter's Art Museum is still a great place to go for the entire family. After all these years, the place to me has not really changed a bit (I'm 32 now). It's very cool for out-of-towners and kids. Oh! The kids area downstairs in the basement is great! They have a replica of the Mona Lisa as well. I believe... More

We went to the museum to see a temporary print exhibit without realizing how much else they had to offer. We spent several hours just wondering around and browsing. The museum is free and walking distance to the Inner Harbor.

the last time I was there was LONG before tripadvisor lets me say but I went through the new wing with the curator and my grandfather, who basically grew up in the house that was being converted into the new wing. What history, what personal memories were shared that day, with my architect grandfather in a wheelchair and the unexpected... More

A wonderful, chock-full-of-treasures-FREE museum. It's got a wonderfully wide variety of exhibits from ancient Asian arts to two Faberge eggs from the Romanov family. Parking is difficult (mainly street) but once you get inside, it is airy and full of beautiful things. The cafe isn't great and the shop is small, but taking a spin around the galleries and gawking... More

The Walters Museum in downtown Baltimore is conveniently located on North Charles Street in downtown Baltimore and possesses some wonderful pieces on display. They frequently have special exhibits that are in themselves worth a trip to Charm City.

As a family collection, it is extremely impressive. There are many fun things to look at for people of all ages. Especially it is free, so every one can enjoy something from it, for sure.

This museum will take you from the mummies to the impressionist art, statues from thailand to India to Europe and from butterflies from south american rain forests to leopards found in the snow - it gives you a glimpse of it all. Its an impressive collection, this side of the Atlantic. The view from one of the third floor galleries... More
