The museum is beautiful and located in the center of Baltimore City- which is lovely. You can walk to other attractive spots in Baltimore - enjoy the park. The museum holds many original works and the building itself is a work of art.

Not the biggest art museum, but certainly excellent. Diverse collection makes it an attraction of equal standing to the BMA and AVA Museums. Lucky Baltimore has 3 top-notch art museums. Not bad for a city of it's size. The paintings at the Maryland Historical Society and Johns Hopkins museum are worthwhile, too.

This gallery is fantastic! A beautiful facility full of incredible objects. Paintings, sculpture, guns, bugs, pottery are just some of the displays. I bought a membership at the end of the day. Gift shop has cool stuff and there are some food and drink vending machines! And, its FREE!!!!!!!

The Walters is a world class museum built by a railroad tycoon. He had dealers from all over the world send him antiques with the only stipulation that it had to be the very best. One of the best collections of Japanese art including magnificent Samurai swords. Not to be missed
