Solo visit to museum great day

Note gift shop will not accept Discover card. 10$ to visit special features exhibit but most if museum is free. Free! Just a block away from Purple line circulator free city bus stop near Washington monument park. Friendly staff and gift shop staff awesome nice . Very nice displays especially of jewels, Christian and ancient items - icons and statuary. The place was a great stop for me solo. Ps I'm mom of 4 and I don't think I would be able to engage my youngest in much of museum main displays but they have kids friendly area and family activities . Check it out ! Closed on Mondays Tuesdays plan trip accordingly as I visited Sunday and had a great time 10-5 pm open hours

One could spend hours in this museum and still have things not seen. What a collection. I had an excellent docent who gave my small group of eight an overview of the entire museum. The collection of Sevres porcelain rivals those in France. The current Egyptian exhibit is fascinating and is definitely worth a visit. The Walters family truly give a huge gift to the citizens of Baltimore. Enjoy your visits

This is a lovely museum! The special exhibition of Jacob Lawrence's Genesis Series was excellent. A wonderful guide took us on a tour of this exhibit. We also visited some of the permanent collection. Definitely worth a visit!
A museum that informs and inspires

I always enjoy going to The Walters; the featured exhibits are always really good, as is the 'regular' collection. Go on the first Thursday of the month to see the main exhibits, and spend some time in the rotunda where they have live music and a cash bar. I find this is a great place to relax and take a time out from the normally fast pace of our lives.
