Beautiful building, history, art collection that covers every era of art in human history. The current shows are really exceptional, as they are carefully curated, and work carefully chosen. Definitely worth visiting. It's a must!

I usually walk down to the Walters on warm days. It has a great collection and it is FREE! It has a nice blend of modern and ancient art and the special collections are always something I look forward to.
Too big for one hour

The museum is ok, but the real reason to go is for the gift shop and the great restaurant -- Mr. Rain's Fun House. The restaurant has an outside patio and a beautiful view. The food is great. If you are the kind of person who wants to own a toaster that makes toast with a representation of Jesus or the Virgin Mary the gift shop offers the ultimate in holiday shopping.
Worth Your While

Went with my wife on 2/1/14. Had a few hours to kill before our dinner reservations and decided to go here mostly because it was the top rated attraction in Baltimore on Trip Advisor. Although I am not a huge fan of museums this was a very pleasant surprise. Admission was free and they had free audio devices that hang around your neck and you can listen to them when you want to know more about an exhibit. They had a two Faberge eggs which are incredibly beautiful. They also had some great armor and weapons displays which I thought were fun to see. We spent about 3 hours at the museum and there was plenty to hold our attention. I’m not sure if it should be the number 1 attraction in Baltimore but it is certainly in the top 10.
