The Pearls on a String exhibit was excellent. It was well laid out and thought provoking. When I was there, however, there were two docents with separate groups bellowing their knowledge. Maybe this is a "Baltimore" thing, but it really detracted from my enjoyment of the exhibit. To dodge the docents, I had to start at the last part of... More

I have been there countless time, alone, with my children, for special exhibit, or just an escape for daily stress. A calm, meditative place that celebrate of beauty and human's creation and appreciate for it. A bonus, a great summer camp for children!

This has been my favorite Art Museum since I was a little girl. Love all of the amazing exhibits, and they have a lot of fun social events on evenings throughout the year that they invite the local community out too as well! Very beautiful, very charming!

I throughly enjoyed this museum. The best art collection I've ever seen. The entryway is so grand. My favorite space was the tombs area. I can't believe they have all these amazingly crafted tombs on display and that they are not behind glass. The Egyptian area was another highlight. I'd say we spent 3 hours here. I can't believe they... More

Completely blown away by the fact that this world class museum is FREE! No shortage of exhibits and activities and again, NO charge for anything! Be sure to hit the donation bucket as you leave - it's the least you can do to say thank you!

I can't believe the collections the Walters have put together, a diverse assortment of old weaponry, fantastic paintings, statues, and objects that impressed me very much. And the admission is free! We gave a donation which is gladly accepted.

This is a beautiful museum. I was impressed from the moment I entered. The Atrium is modeled from an Italian court yard. Each floor has a special feature from every continent. The exhibits include paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, jewelry, and artifacts from all parts of the globe. The current "Pearls on a String" had me hooked for hours just reading the... More

The Walters has the biggest collection of Medieval art in the States! I feel so lucky to have it so close to home. It's like a little slice of Europe in the middle of Baltimore! For more esoteric wonder, be sure to check out the World-famously beautiful Peabody library right across the street!

This is a 5 level gallery full of prized fine arts. You'll be surprised that a mid-size city would have these rich collection of fine arts such as paintings, sculptures and artifacts. I'm more impressed with their vast collection of Egyptian, Roman and Greek fine arts at the 2nd floor.Mediaval world exhibition in 3rd floor. They also have featured exhibitions... More

Baltimore's Mount Vernon area lucked out ~ The standard exhibits are amazing. The special 2016 exhibition "Pearls on a String: Artists, Patrons, and Poets at the Great Islamic Courts" is outstanding. Plan on spending several hours.
