Loved it!

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.

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 -

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.

Open--and free--on Thursday night, I found world-famous and amazing Pissarro's, Monet, Manet, and Rousseau paintings on the 4th floor--an exhibit of artwork owned by the Walter family. Real Faberge eggs--formerly owned by Russian royalty as well as Tiffany and Lalique jewelry!--Not to be missed!

I love the sculpture garden. The Hall of Wonders is so much fun - for everyone! Definately worth a membership. The Archeologist window is so interesting.

This is a great cultural stop in Baltimore. It tickled me to go on a Sunday, when parking in the neighborhood was free, and of course admission to the museum is free. The building itself is an attraction - for me the old rooms of the house were amazing. The kids love the tight stone spiral staircase in one section.... More

One of the Greatest selection of artistic expressions and works in an area consumed with Galleries. This one is a must see for all historians and those who appreciate established and preserved art. Friendly staff and a great selection for 'light fare" eating.

As others have said, this is a worthwhile visit for adults. Thursdays between 5-9, when even the special exhibits are free and they serve wine and beer in the cafe, used to be my favorite time to go. Now that I have a toddler, I've discovered some of their perks for families: the lower level has a nice play/reading/art activities... More

Not bad, however you have to be a real art lover to tour the museum. They have a good selection of art from a variety of periods, from early civilizations, religious art, modern and other period artworks. The museum is free, ADA compliant and has a small café.

This is a great place to visit, especially for people on a budget. (it's free!) The collection is outstanding and the From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story exhibit was beautiful. Tip: after your visit, walk around the corner to see the Washington Monument and then walk a few blocks south to see the Basilica of the National Shrine of... More
