This art gallery has been around for years & is so very interesting. If you are in Baltimore, you must visit this gem. Located in a beautiful neighborhood & offering many diversed art exhibits.

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!

I have traveled to Baltimore more than a dozen times, but had never visited the Walters. Boy, had I been missing an incredible experience! There is no admission fee, and the building itself is incredibly clean, well maintained and absolutely beautiful. The collection rivals many museums in Europe and has a wide variety of artifacts from the Egyptian, Greek and... More

While this would not have usually been on our radar, we figured with 500 plus positive TripAdvisor reviews we couldn't go wrong. We are certainly glad we went. We took advantage of the free audio tour which added a depth of appreciation for the pieces. The museum has a nice flow to it and the items are well lit and... More

We went up on a Tuesday... Closed Monday and Tuesday. Went back Thursday. Wanted to See The Asian and 19th century collection. Both closed. Argh. We drive from western md both days. Parking is available around the block, husk keep your eyes pealed. Admission is free. The website is terrible to navigate so call and ask questions. There are 5... More

Absolutely incredible museum with a great staff. Seriously, this museum does not get the attention it deserves! It's a great way to spend an afternoon cost-free. If you are looking for a traveling exhibition though, which requires a fee, make sure to check the website to confirm the dates. Permanent exhibits include Ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman sculptures, 18th-19th century... More
