Walters Art Museum

This free museum has everything from ancient 5000 BC relics to modern 21st century art.

Initially a personal collection started by father and son duo William and Henry Walters, it grew to 22,000 items by the time Henry passed in 1931. The collection was donated to the City of Baltimore “for the benefit of the public,” and the rest is history. The collection now has over 36,000 items.

Take a trip back in time as you explore Egyptian history, Byzantine art, Renaissance paintings, Medieval artifacts, and so much more. Stick around to enjoy food, drinks, and delights in Baltimore’s artsy Mount Vernon neighborhood.
