“walter's is worth investigating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Feels like stepping outside of America, lots to view and admire, especially since it so tied to english heritage. Just a hop from Baltimore Arts musuem, is not to hard to find, but parking on street is limited, so prepare to walk. It's free, and is worth it! My college student hates looking at impressionistic art, but she liked the Walker based on it's style and not just a bunch of painings on bare walls.

“Wonderful collection- admission by donation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Parking was easy in the lot across the street. More that I could see in a day- vast collection from throughout the world. Painting, sculpture, objects & artifacts. From what I saw, I liked best a temporary exhibit of The watercolors of Léon Bonvin (which ends May 20, 2012). Absolutely worth a visit.

“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Enjoyed the The Ancient Americas Show, up until May 20th, 2012. The staff was very friendly.
They have picture window upstairs the Walters where you can watch art restorers at work, and they even encourage visitors to ask questions of the restorers. That is something cool I haven't seen before. Much of the museum collection is online, so you might familiarize yourself with the artwork in advance.
We attended a forum in the lecture hall, which was free with admission. The acoustics and seating were first-rate.

“Nice afternoon visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

The Walters is definitely a nice afternoon visit. The fact that admission is free is even better. Went on an afternoon with my boyfriend and we had a nice time touring the museum.

Only problem was we didn't have enough time! The Walters is definitely bigger than it looks so make sure you save enough time to enjoy it. We left ourselves about 2 hours and needed probably a half hour more. However about 15 minutes to closing time employees started to tell us to leave the viewing rooms and that the museum was closing. We had about 10 minutes left and wanted to check the gift shop real quick but they wouldn't even let us do that. When they say they're closing they mean it! It's a great place to visit just make sure to save yourself enough time!
