“A Baltimore Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

While visiting Baltimore, I attended a party at the Walters Museum. It was a delight.
There was music and wine. I toured the exhibits which I found quite comprehensive for a small museum. My family and I also got involved with an exhibit where we were photographed.
A great time, a great place,

“Incredible Collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

This free museum was one of the highlights of our short trip to Baltimore. There is a surprising amount of Egyptian pieces, and a great collection of paintings. We initially planned to only spend an hour, but found ourselves there for much longer. The museum is located near a few other sites in the pretty Mount Vernon area, which is a reasonable walk from hotels near the Inner Harbor.

“Wonderful museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

One of Baltimore's greatest treasures, the Walters will provide you with a wonderful cultural experience. Admission is free and so is the audio tour that describes the significance of works of art throughout the building. And don't miss the Hackerman House that is connected to the main building. The museum has everything from mummies to medieval armor to modern art. "Art Blooms" is a special weekend in April when all the garden clubs in the area create beautiful floral arrangements inspired by selected paintings and sculptures. It is a wonderful time to visit the Walters!

“Great small museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Walters seems to have a forward looking and intelligent curatorial staff. I go there for special exhibits and always end up spending more time that I'd thought because of their amazingly weel displayed collection.
The building is a merger of the original marble, museum-typical outside, with a lovely, elegant modern addition.
See the collection of ancient weapons for a unique pass through the ages. For a visitor, it ranks up with the better, more interesting museums of teh SMithsonian.
