traveled with two teenage girls and loved it. We expecially like the way the layout told us about the collecting habits of long ago
Baltimore's Best Museum
Jul 27, 2014 by: Jet39 from Brooklyn, New York
I was expecting the Baltimore Museum of Art to impress me the most, but the Walters Art Museum outshines it by far. Its deep collection of religious art is outstanding, from paintings to sculptures to stained glass. The elaborate sarcophagi are fantastic, and the vibrant ceramics around the atrium are wonderful. Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt are well represented, too, as are books that are centuries old and works of art themselves. And the little pluses are that the museum is free, easy to walk to from the city center, and in one of Baltimore's better neighborhoods. Don't miss it!
Don't Miss This Treasure Trove of a Fantastic Private Art Collection

A fabulous way to spend some hours in this historical and beautifully restored building filled with a fantastic private collection of artistic treasures accumulated during two lifetimes, father and son and donated so generously to the public to be enjoyed and appreciated for generations to come.
Such a delight!!!

A very nice collection covering several eras, from bronze-age Mesopotamia to the Greco-Roman nation-state period to medieval Europe. Excellent breadth of artifacts, each with clear descriptions and historical context for neophytes like me. Parking in Baltimore can often be... well, awkward... so we left our car in the garage by the aquarium and made the easy 1-mile trip on foot. We saw several interesting little shops and restaurants along the way that we wouldn't have even known about had we driven. A worthy spot to make time for when you're in Baltimore.
