Beautiful and Free

We go here frequently. It's free admission but you pay for parking. It's well worth it since it almost impossible to find street parking. The children love the medieval armor room.

Make sure you have a ton of time for the Walter's because you'll want to see it all! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, the museum feels intimate and special, and there are tons of rooms to get absolutely lost in!

There is so much to this museum-what a collection! If I lived in Baltimore, I would become a member of this museum. There is such a variety to see, it's difficult to soak it all in within one visit. I really enjoyed my time there. And, it's unbelievable that it's free. Definitely a gem.

This museum is one of the city's hidden gems. The museum has a fabulous collection from ancient art to Middle Age art to Faberge eggs and beyond. The museum is free, a little tricky to get around sometimes but very well done!

It has an fantastic collections of different sorts of art, paintings, artifacts and more! It ranges in different periods of art such as Impressionist, Renaissance, and others which gives us varying perspectives from artists! No complaints about service, staff, and overall cleanliness of this place. Great day trip for all!

The Walters crown jewel is its educational outreach program which is free to public schools. The reps are passionate about their art and their gallery. Do your child's school a favor and mention this outreach program to the art teacher.
