Walters Enthusiasts Taste & Tour

All attendees must be 21 and over.

One of the Walters' greatest hidden gems is the manuscript collection. Due to the fragile nature of these treasures, they are rarely on view. But now's your chance!

Join the Walters Enthusiasts for this exciting opportunity to explore the library with Curatorial Associate of Rare Books and Manuscripts, Dr. Lynley Herbert. She will introduce you to some highlights of the collection, and give you a sneak-preview of an upcoming exhibition.

The tour will also include depictions of revelry and drinking, which leads up to the "Taste" portion of the event! Each ticket includes a flight of wine & beer, as well as a drink ticket so you can enjoy your favorite.

  • Regular: $20
  • Museum Members: $15
  • Walters Enthusiasts Members: $10. Contact we@thewalters.org for your discount code.

Tickets are extremely limited!
Meet in Cafe Q.
