The Walters is one of the two big museums in Baltimore. Its downtown building is magnificent...and the collections it houses are classic. They are known for their Faberge eggs and jewelry, but their paintings. sculpture, and even coats of armor are world class.

A Baltimore stable & impressive that there is no entrance fee. Museum building itself is wonderful to walk through. Highly recommend. They have hands on projects for kids, check their website.
