Walters Art Museum

Founded in 1934 and located in the heart of Baltimore, The Walters Art Museum holds collections established during the mid-19th century, amassed by the art and sculpture collectors, father and son William Thompson Walters. The museum’s collection spans more than 7 millennia, from 5000 BCE to the 21st century, and encompasses 36,000 objects from around the world, from romantic 19th-century images of French gardens to Ethiopian icons, Qur’ans and Gospel books, ancient Roman sarcophagi, and images of the Buddha. Since its founding, the Walters’ mission has been to bring art and people together to create a place where people of every background can be touched by art. As part of this commitment, admission to the museum and special exhibitions is free.
