I visit the Walters and Mount Vernon often, many rooms with a great variety of art.. Nice in the spring and combine it with the flower market. In fall combine it with a visit to the book festival. Street parking is a hassle during those times, but there is a parking garage along Guilford rd and FranklynXCharles

My boyfriend took me here on one of our first dates and I have to admit it was one of the best dates I've ever been on. There is a lot of history behind the museum and everything is well labeled so everyone can follow along. They offer the headphone/walking tour but we wondered around by ourselves. I would recommend... More

The Walters Art Museum was a decent museum to visit. I've been to many all over the country, and this wasn't bad. They had three wings on three floors of Asian exhibits. We really enjoyed the ancient Egyptian, Rome and Greek, and medieval exhibits. There was a room for medieval manuscripts, but we didn't have time to visit it. I... More

Since I am a member of the Philadelphia Art museum I was quite surprised by this museum's fine collection of great artists. Not usually found at smaller museums. Four floors of art. Special exhibits at an extra charge.

We've been several times and each time find something fresh and interesting. On a rainy March Saturday we went for a Jacob Lawrence exhibit (limited run) and thought the staging was well done. Pleasant gift shop with tasteful stuff.

The museum is nice, but I expected to see many more of a variety of artifacts. It only took us about 45 minutes to see most everything. It's nice that it's free.

The Walters is one of my favorite art museums. I've been to many over the years and I've been here on several occasions as well, but it was my most recent trip which made me think that I had to finally write a review. The Walter's has a superb 19th century collection (the often overlooked Academic Art, to Realism, Romanticism,... More

Very enjoyable free art museum! Nice architecture, friendly staff, and so much to see. Leave yourself several hours to look around. Great section of the city too.

Excellent museum for all ages. High quality exhibits and great permanent collection spans from ancient to 20th century. Go across street for lunch but plan to spend the day. We spent 5+ hours and did not see it all, and plan to return!!
