The Walters Art Museum is fun because it has more than just paintings and sculptures. It has medieval suits of amour and weaponry, mummies, insects and more. Highly recommended.
Small and Stellar

This is an excellent collection right in the heart of the historic Mt Vernon district. Free entrance, a beautiful atrium, and a magnificent collection. My personal favorite is the room full of what I'd consider curiosities but all are beautiful and the more traditional galleries are spectacularly done. Some great European pieces on the second floor. Worth a trip!
Mid-sized art museum - Terrific experience !

I love seeking out the smaller museums - with pockets of interesting artifacts and art-work - especially when the acquisitions reflect the taste and collections of a given family, in this case of the Walter family, primarily a father and son. The span of art includes both American and European - and the last special exhibition seen on book-binding was *incomparable.* The examples were so rare and fine as to be *singular,* with no other such examples known to exist. This is viewing "worth a journey" ! The staff is friendly and helpful - and I must say, the free admission is terrific because one can come, go, and return within a day or a span of days without paying a fee -- and no pressure exists to "over-due" it by seeing really "too-much" on a single admission ticket. The Walters Art Museum is worth a special trip to Baltimore. Parking is available near-by, and the museum has a cafe on-site, but if you prefer to go off-site to eat, no issue, here - because admission is free and no cost accrues to return trips. A great place to visit - with learning and viewing opportunities for all !

I first got a chance to see this museum while work for a fun raising event there with my security company. So I didn't get a chance to really enjoy it.But took my son there and it was awesome so many artifacts and full of history we spent the whole day there.They have a kids interactive part for the kids it was amazing and did I say that it was FREE I know couldn't believe it either, so if you visit Baltimore and want to go to a MUST SEE please ask or look up this wonderful museum you won't be disappointed
Wish I had taken more time

I went for a lecture and wished I had more time to visit the museum from the few exhibits I did see. They also place copies of the prints around the city on building and such to promote interest in the museum.
