The Walters Art Museum houses a vast selection of world art, including Greek sculpture, Roman sarcophagi, Art Nouveau jewelry, and medieval ivories, as well as Old Master and 19th-century masterpieces. Named for William Thompson Walters and Henry Walters, the father and son duo who collected a significant portion of the museum’s pieces, the museum opened in 1934 following Henry’s death and subsequent donation of his collection to the city of Baltimore. An audio guide is available to talk you through each exhibit. Make your Baltimore itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

We spent several hours exploring the museum. It has such a range of pieces to view. The snack bar is also very reasonably priced

Lovely destination for tourists and citizens on Baltimore. There are many truly stunning art pieces here. Despite none of them being extremely famous, the sheer age and intricacy of some of the pieces is insanely cool. Fantastic museum, really really lovely place
Excellent museum with diverse collection of art from various centuries in a variety of mediums. Price was perfect at FREE and staff and docents were friendly and helpful. Currently showcasing a type of pottery from the United Kingdom with vivid colors courtesy of a lead based glaze that highlights the health impact of those who worked on the pieces.
