Worth a visit and you Can't beat the price - Free!

There is Parking available in a lot across from side entrance; bring in ticket for validation and discount, check the website. We got lucky and found free street parking on a Sunday. The museum has a nice eclectic collection. For me it can be overwhelming to see and appreciate all museums have to offer. Most exhibits had a numbered photo laminate of the displays in each room that described each piece detail. Because we were limited for time I would choose one piece In a room or collection to read about. My husband and I were lucky to join a walk-in tour of The Chamber of Art and Wonders. (Check "events" on the website home page). Our tour guide was passionate about the subject and was informative and engaging. Don't miss the two Faberge eggs on display in the Treasury Room. Our guide told us that only about 25% of the Walter's art collection is on display at any given time and pieces are rotated in and out of storage; therefore, she encouraged us to come back again in the future for a different experience. There is a nice Cafe with speciality coffee and tea drinks for purchase.
lovely things, kind staff

traveled with two teenage girls and loved it. We expecially like the way the layout told us about the collecting habits of long ago
Baltimore's Best Museum
Jul 27, 2014 by: Jet39 from Brooklyn, New York
I was expecting the Baltimore Museum of Art to impress me the most, but the Walters Art Museum outshines it by far. Its deep collection of religious art is outstanding, from paintings to sculptures to stained glass. The elaborate sarcophagi are fantastic, and the vibrant ceramics around the atrium are wonderful. Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt are well represented, too, as are books that are centuries old and works of art themselves. And the little pluses are that the museum is free, easy to walk to from the city center, and in one of Baltimore's better neighborhoods. Don't miss it!

A fabulous way to spend some hours in this historical and beautifully restored building filled with a fantastic private collection of artistic treasures accumulated during two lifetimes, father and son and donated so generously to the public to be enjoyed and appreciated for generations to come.
Such a delight!!!
