From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story Walk-In Tour

Explore our newest exhibit in this week's Sunday walk-in tour. The Walters Art Museum began as the private passion of two men, William T. Walters (1819–1894) and his son, Henry (1848–1931), but grew into a public mission to bring art to the people of Baltimore. Building a collection of staggering depth and scope, they assembled more than 20,000 items—the majority of the art objects that constitute the Walters Art Museum as we know it today. Take a tour of this reinstallation of the permanent collection that explores their lives, times, tastes, and legacy.

This tour is part of our free, docent-led, walk-in tours. No reservations are required; just walk in and enjoy.
