The Walters is one of Americas premier private collections and there is no admission charge. The exhibit of the cabinet of wonders is a delight for kids and adults. The range of art and antiquities is amazing.

The museum is great for young and old. They have childrens art activities and an exhibit full of oddities collected from around the world. Nice Egyptian collection. Check to see when it is free.

I had no expectations and was delighted to find such an exquisite collection. And it's free. Don't miss the Medieval and early Renaissance paintings.

My daughter and I recently spent an enjoyable afternoon exploring the galleries at the Walter Art Museum. Certainly a gem just north of the Inner Harbor. We went there based on the many positive reviews on TA and were not disappointed.

Only had 1 1/2 hours, but enjoyed them immensely. Excellent ancient section, especially Egypt and Greece. Don't expect modern- there is none. A bit weak on Impressionism (one small room filled with quality paintings), but strong on Renaissance, Islamic and Asian in addition to the ancient material. Biggest "name" I found was El Greco. Overheard excellent docent-led tours, both for adults and for children. Also saw people in wheelchairs, so I presume its very accessible to these visitors. Free audio headsets available, but I didn't have enough time to avail myself. Baltimore is lucky to have such a fine facility available, and free of charge!
