Walters Art Museum, Baltimore artist to attempt world's longest game of telephone
While Baltimore already boasts the world record for the largest bowl of applesauce (weighing a whopping 716 pounds) and largest iced tea (2,204 gallons), the city will attempt to add another Guinness World Record to the list next month.

You are invited to discover some of the most talented artists from around the globe and across the ages. The Walters Art Museum is one of only a few museums in the world to present a panorama of art from the third millennium B.C. to the early 20th century. The thousands of treasures range from mummies to arms and armor, from old master paintings to Art Nouveau jewelry. The Walters' Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ethiopian and Western Medieval art collections are among the finest in the nation, as are the museum's holdings of Renaissance and Asian art and a spectacular reserve of illuminated manuscripts and rare books. Every major trend in French painting during the 19th century is represented in the collection, which was amassed substantially by two men, William and Henry Walters, and eventually bequeathed to the City of Baltimore.

Wonderfully curated art museum in the center of Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood. Galleries are well done and even the way the art is displayed is creative. Plan on spending at least half a day here as it's a fairly big place. Oh and did we mention it's free? Please consider making a donation to continue to support their work.

Holy cow they have everything. I could only make it throigh half the museum it's so gargantuan, and their collection covers most of the western world and a lot of the eastern world's art for the last four thousand years. Thousand. Four thousand years of art. Just sitting there for you to look at. They have a mummy. A thousands of years old dead human being, surrounded by priceless treasure in a glass box, just for you to go and look at and be like, "Huh, that was a person once." They have jewelry from murdered kings, and the café has nice decor but they only have vending machines so don't expect anything there.

The Walters us a truly magnificent museum, especially if you have a fondness for history. Their selection of artifacts from the medieval and Renaissance worlds is astonishing. As an amateur medievalist, I found myself in awe at the arms and armor, the stained glass windows, and the paintings. Be sure to reserve as much of your day for a trip to the Walters so you can really take in the exhibits.

What a beautiful place. Such interesting displays. One of the few places I have seen, first hand, original, Orientalist art by Gerome. And the majority of it came from the founders private collection. It was a wonderful experience.

Great museum. Take time to walk around the gardens outside the museum as well. We also drove around the park which was beautiful. Loved seeing The Thinker and all of the wonderful pieces throughout the museum.

Fabulous collection now housed in expanded space. Much to see from the Medieval and Renaissance up through the 19th century and later; as well as Islamic and Asian collection. A gift to the city of Baltimore, free to the public -- but please do support it!

Lots of interesting artifacts and images to explore and talk about. Children's section in basement was perfect "time-out" when our children needed a break.

Wonderful art, elegantly displayed. Well worth a visit. Convenient parking across Cathedral St. The Arms and Armor exhibit is amazing, featuring weaponry ranging from prehistoric times to the 19th century, including medieval weapons.
