A Free & Fun Experience
Jul 20, 2014 by: HonestAdventurer from Baltimore, Maryland
One of the best museums I've been to and it's free. There is no much to see and experience. You cannot see it all in one day and since it's free, you can always go back to experience the rest. My favorite are the medieval exhibits. It's clean, family friendly, and fun. Spend a day here!
Awesome and Free

we loved this place and were so amazed at how much stuff there was in this Free Museum. Don't miss it!!!

I have traveled to Baltimore more than a dozen times, but had never visited the Walters. Boy, had I been missing an incredible experience! There is no admission fee, and the building itself is incredibly clean, well maintained and absolutely beautiful. The collection rivals many museums in Europe and has a wide variety of artifacts from the Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras. It also has a wide range of artwork, especially of Dutch artists. Take the time to go and enjoy!

While this would not have usually been on our radar, we figured with 500 plus positive TripAdvisor reviews we couldn't go wrong. We are certainly glad we went. We took advantage of the free audio tour which added a depth of appreciation for the pieces. The museum has a nice flow to it and the items are well lit and displayed. If we are in Baltimore again we will certainly be returning to the Walter Art Museum.
Call and ask what is closed before going

We went up on a Tuesday... Closed Monday and Tuesday. Went back Thursday. Wanted to See The Asian and 19th century collection. Both closed. Argh. We drive from western md both days. Parking is available around the block, husk keep your eyes pealed. Admission is free. The website is terrible to navigate so call and ask questions. There are 5 Vasari paintings (the highlight this day) and a Rembrandt accessible. But hey, I love the Impressionist that were ALL unavailable. Major bummer. The other artifacts were very nice especially the Egyptian collection. A must see at Mt Vernon.
