There is Parking available in a lot across from side entrance; bring in ticket for validation and discount, check the website. We got lucky and found free street parking on a Sunday. The museum has a nice eclectic collection. For me it can be overwhelming to see and appreciate all museums have to offer. Most exhibits had a numbered photo... More

traveled with two teenage girls and loved it. We expecially like the way the layout told us about the collecting habits of long ago

I was expecting the Baltimore Museum of Art to impress me the most, but the Walters Art Museum outshines it by far. Its deep collection of religious art is outstanding, from paintings to sculptures to stained glass. The elaborate sarcophagi are fantastic, and the vibrant ceramics around the atrium are wonderful. Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt are well represented, too,... More

A fabulous way to spend some hours in this historical and beautifully restored building filled with a fantastic private collection of artistic treasures accumulated during two lifetimes, father and son and donated so generously to the public to be enjoyed and appreciated for generations to come.

A very nice collection covering several eras, from bronze-age Mesopotamia to the Greco-Roman nation-state period to medieval Europe. Excellent breadth of artifacts, each with clear descriptions and historical context for neophytes like me. Parking in Baltimore can often be... well, awkward... so we left our car in the garage by the aquarium and made the easy 1-mile trip on foot.... More

This is a wonderful museum located in a charming area of Baltimore, and it was FREE. My family loved it. The square it is located on has several other historic sites nearby, like the Baltimore Cathedral and the Peabody Music Academy.

This is a nice small museum (by Smithsonian standards) with a wide ranging collection of fine art that is well-displayed. And admission is free!

One of the best museums I've been to and it's free. There is no much to see and experience. You cannot see it all in one day and since it's free, you can always go back to experience the rest. My favorite are the medieval exhibits. It's clean, family friendly, and fun. Spend a day here!
