This museum was near our hotel but we had our eyes on the aquarium. We finished by mid afternoon so we decided to stop by this museum. I'm glad we did! It was a very nice museum that had a lot of antiques and asian art. Staff was helpful and there was even a woman working on a manuscript. We had a conversation about what she was working on. It was insightful! Do stop by this museum. It is worth your while.

This is a HUGE collection, encompassing virtually every civilization and historical epoch with excellent quality. Admission is FREE for everything except the rotating special exhibit.
Beautiful art, bizarre collections

My favorite "tour" that I will take visitors on is: An hour or two at the Walters, stroll around the Washington monument (don't go up- too claustrophobic), a view of the beautiful church, and into the Peabody library for a view of the most beautiful building in Baltimore. If you are feeling fancy, step into the foyer of the Engineer's Club to see the Tiffany dome (it's a private club, but the receptionists are often accommodating). The Walters has a fascinating collection of taxidermy, weaponry, and unexpected jewelry, in addition to the standard art museum collection. and it's FREE!
Somehting for everyone in the family

I visit the Walters and Mount Vernon often, many rooms with a great variety of art.. Nice in the spring and combine it with the flower market. In fall combine it with a visit to the book festival. Street parking is a hassle during those times, but there is a parking garage along Guilford rd and FranklynXCharles
Great First Date

My boyfriend took me here on one of our first dates and I have to admit it was one of the best dates I've ever been on. There is a lot of history behind the museum and everything is well labeled so everyone can follow along. They offer the headphone/walking tour but we wondered around by ourselves. I would recommend taking your time and not rushing through any of the exhibits. It's great for older kids/young teens on a rainy afternoon.
