Don't miss this museum

This is an amazing museum. It is free unless you want to attend a special exhibit. The museum is open late on Thursdays. This museum is internationally-renowned for its extensive art collection. The range of the collection is utterly amazing--pre-dynastic Egypt to 20th century Europe to Greek and Roman treasures to Old Masters paintings--just to name a few. There are sculptures, paintings, medieval armor and weapons, tapestries, jewelry, stained glass, books, etc. There is an extensive religious art collection. There is so much to see that it really requires more than one visit. The people who work here are both friendly and helpful. There is a very nice cafe and gift shop on the first floor. I can't wait to go back.
A Baltimore Must See

This is an under appreciated gem in Baltimore. A nice museum overall what elevates it is the Cone collection. A truly amazing collection of late 19th century early 20th century art. Has some really famous painting including some excellent Gauguins, one of my favorites. You should go!
Great little museum

This museum has always astounded us with their excellent collection of art from all across the spectrum. It is well managed and is a must see every time we are in Baltimore

I love museums. I could spend hours looking at the details and taking in the atmosphere. The Walters was a fantastic find in Baltimore. It's free, which is great. But it also covers a wide variety of art. There are paintings, sculptures, jewelry, sarcophagi, manuscripts, swords, guns, and more. Very easy to navigate as well. Make sure you take the time to spend an afternoon here.
An awesome place

I recently attended an event they were having at the Walters Art Museum's and had a great time with the children. I found this website to be super helpful when searching for things to do in Baltimore, specifically Downtown. GoDowntownBaltimore.com even helps you reserve a PARKING SPACE through Parking Panda! Amazing right! My husband even booked a dinner reservation through the site, after a concert we found on that site.
