My husband and I visited The Walter's Art Museum during our recent stay in Baltimore. Beautiful collections and so much to see. It is a short walk up from the Inner Harbor, has free admission, and is surrounded by other great attractions. It is a must see.

What a beautiful art museum! It is a smaller version of the national galleries in the major cities its interior architectural features, the major collections, the layout, and sculptures. Everything about it is topnotch and elegant. All created by the two visionary Walters brothers. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this one! Gorgeous!

I really enjoyed this museum which had very unique presentation of unique collections of materials. We spent 90 minutes just in one section looking at the varied items in the collection. If you have visited the Barnes Foundation museum in Philadelphia, the manner of presentation feels very similar, with varied objects presented together in an engaging way, with natural history...

What a Gem! This is a true treasure of a museum. The amount of art, the presentation and the whole experience was amazing. If you enjoy beautiful things this is a "must do" when in Baltimore. You will not be disappointed.

We drove up from DC to see the amazing artifacts in this collection - especially significant are the statues from ancient Greece and Egypt...even some great pieces from Mesopotamia - this was recommended, worth the drive and very fabulous!! I love free museums (though we certainly donated toward keeping it free!) Close to the Mt. Vernon monument...relatively easy to park-... More

Each floor is beautiful and a great starter museums for kids. Fun activities and never over crowded. Some of my favorite painting collections of all the museums I've ever visited. It's... More

I had not heard of the museum but friends suggested going. The museum has an amazing collection . Diverse and beautifully displayed. I was surprised to find that the museum is free. They had a place where a conservator showed how the repaired and cleaned artwork. They also showed how different pieces are made like the Fabergè eggs and vases.... More

There is just so much to see here from the Ancient Egyptians through to 19th century English pottery. Although this is an art gallery, there is such a broad variety of things to see including paintings, pottery, manuscripts, jewellery, weapons, armour and religious artifacts. We took my around in a wheelchair with easy access to all the rooms. We were... More

The museum is four floors of awesome! From the outside and neighborhood to every hall. With each hall another exhibit it is a must see. Make sure to look up at the ceiling for the awesome craftsmanship there to. The fascinating murals and sculptures are truly works of art. The history of Walter himself interesting enough just to go. Plus... More
