TODAY, 12-4pm, Ariel O’Connor will be in the Chamber of Wonders speaking about a few of the very interesting objects on display there. Why is there an alligator on the wall? What did the conservators at the museum recently learn about a rock crystal reliquary casket (WAM 57.695) that was so fascinating? See samples of enamel from the casket and have a chance to see examples of historic enameling techniques, learn about how and why the samples were taken, and find out more about some of the other wonderful items in this gallery.

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.

Great place to spend a few hours. It is a good collection of artifacts from around the world with emphasis on Europe and Asia. The architecture of the existing mansion buildings also adds another level to the museum experience. Admission is also free, which is always a good thing.

Don't let the "free" thing fool you, this museum well worth your time and energy, and probably better than many of the not-so-free museums I have been to. Expect to spend a good share of a day to see the whole thing. Also, the free coat check was unexpected.

The Walters Art Museum is a true treasure in Baltimore. So well put together and the Hackerman House is such a beautiful space just on its own. Good for kids. Free!
