The Walters Gallery is probably the best classical museum in Baltimore. The collection spans from the prehistoric to the modern. A great place to spend an afternoon. While more culturally inclined teens will be fine, there really isn't much here for younger children.

We planned our visit around a 1:00 "Fashion in History" tour and were so glad we did! The docents were awesome and so interesting. After the tour we wandered around visiting more of the museum and totally enjoyed it. A gem in Baltimore for sure!

I’ve been here many times as a college professor and my students love the collection and docents. My girlfriend was just as enthusiastic about going and as always, the Walters did not disappoint free admission!!
