Baltimore Book Festival Weekend

Visit our booth on Charles Street for fun book-themed activities and don't forget to stop in the museum for our many activities.

Now in its final weekend, focus show, Living by the Book: Monks, Nuns and Their Manuscripts displays medieval books not as stagnant, dusty tomes, but living objects with remarkable stories to tell about a monastic culture that flourishes to this day.

Now on view, Jacob Lawrence's Genesis Series features eight works, each describing a passage from the book of Genesis in the King James version of the Bible.

Visit our Book Sale at the Museum Store and enjoy discounts on a huge selection of art books and museum catalogs.

At the conservation window, talk with our conservators as they work to preserve book and paper art objects. All weekend, from 12:30-4pm.

Drop-in Art Activities: "Books! Libros! Livres!" for book-themed art activities for the whole family Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Join us for one of our free, weekly walk-in tours this Sunday at 1 p.m. featuring highlights of the collection of the Walters Art Museum

Art Books and Rare Books from area merchants on the Walters Sculpture Court.
