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.
