It may not have the fun factor like the National Aquarium, but this art museum offers a great collection, all nicely laid out. The volunteer staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable as well. Free admission, and free lockers helped make this a great time on a cold afternoon.

This is a beautiful art museum in a convenient location with free admission. What could be better? There is a wide variety of featured collections, including an impressive hall of antique weapons.

Great museum. Take time to see it. They had excellent exhibits and it took about 5 hours to complete tour at our own pace. Will take longer if u want to soak up all they have to offer!

Located in the heart of the historic part of Baltimore referred to as Mount Vernon is this great set of buildings full of many spans of centuries of art. From ancient Egyptian, Roman, Asian and more to Medieval and Renaissance to the 19th century, there is something for everyone.

If you live in Baltimore, the Walters Art Museum is your good FREE treasury of world history. It is worthy of spending several days enjoying the historical items in the museum. If you come to Baltimore for sightseeing, it is also a must. Visiting Baltimore without this museum would be a great pity.
