I made a very short, last minute visit to the Walters with a friend, and was absolutely blown away. Staff were very considerate, and took the time to let us know what was easiest to see in the short time before the museum closed, asked what we were interested in, and pointed us towards relevant areas. The displays were outstanding,... More

We spent 2 hours here. The museum is free and has a superb collection of every type of art you could imagine: from egyptian mummies, the roman and greek statues, to renaissance painting-quite a span of art history. Worth a visit while in Baltimore.

They have mystery game packets for you to read and explore the exhibits with as well as a very nice park not far away just to sit and relax after visiting the Museum. There are also nice small shops and... More

Free to visit but you'll probably pay for parking. A bit of everything, rare floor mosaics from Near east. Great for 2-3 hours. Helpful, friendly staff.

I'm not a huge art fan but it has a wonderful collection of artefacts and some awesome displays. Impressive collection of European history and must check out the Collectors Study, very impressive. Friendly staff and free admission, there isn't a lot to complain about. It only got four stars because after the European History not a lot more caught my... More

Go for 5 minutes or for hours and take in the tremendous variety of sculpture, paintings, weaponry and artifacts. Just the building itself is worth a walk around -

Absolutely beautiful and free! We spend the last day of our weekend here and it was a great choice. So many different art pieces; paintings, statues, pottery and more.

A mini-Louvre … a little of almost everything … Old World antiquities, modern artists and painters. We zipped through it in an hour and left with a desire to come back to explore. Spend as little or as much time as you want to. You won't regret it.
