This museum is located in the historic Mount Vernon section of Baltimore and is easily accessed by Baltimore's free Charm City Circulator bus service.
The collections of the Walters span different eras of European art, Medieval artifacts, Islamic art, Asian art and so much more. There is such a diverse amount of material to view and it is so well organized with helpful written material to educate you on what you are seeing. The museum provides guide material in many languages as well as specially designed material to engage children and to encourage them to get in front of pieces that would interest and fascinate them (large medieval suits of armor, for example).
We spent over 2 hours there and cannot wait to go back. Visitors should plan a long day to get to see the majority of the rooms in this multi-floor museum....or split their visit across two days.
The Walters is wonderful....and it is FREE. Go see it...you will not be disappointed. Art museums are sometimes perceived as stuffy and boring places. This is certainly not true of the Walters.
