Hidden in Mount Vernon is this absolutely beautiful cave of art! I've been here for almost 6 years and failed to notice this place although we walk by the building quite often . Until one day we're like let's go take a look and man am I happy we did. The museum has a wonderful collection of art from the... More

My wife and I stopped her to kill some time since it was a free museum. We spent about an hour walking throughout the building and saw a lot of good art. If you have an hour of time to fill and are on a budget, check this place out. (You will have to pay for parking if you want... More

This museum is a stone's throw away from the Baltimore Basilica. If you have the time, def. worth the visit!

I wandered into this free museum unaware of how awesome it is. I only had an hour to explore , but will definitely be back. A mini Met in what I believe was once a private residence. I also think it reflects one mans lifelong collection, if so he was one complicated / eccentric dude, as there are a lot... More

This is a world class museum tucked away in a second class town. The beauty of it all is that the City offers free admission, since it is a City agency. All of the collections are amazing, from the most ancient, including a great Egyptian collection, through the Roman and Etruscan galleries, which will knock your socks off. Then on... More

We were amazed to find such a great collection housed in the middle of Mount Vernon, completely free of charge. The collection itself spans many centuries-worth of works, and includes pieces from all over the globe. There is a little bit of everything in this museum, so it should appeal to just about anyone. This is definitely a must-see for... More

A lot of religious art, which is usually boring, but this is a very strange collection. The art interests of the Walters family definitely have a dark side.

The Walters Art Gallery is a must for art lovers. Plan on taking about two hours to see all of the exhibits.

A personal collection, but one put together by a man of great taste. Old masters, objets d'art, Asian art--lots of first rate stuff.
