About the Walters Museum

The Walters Art Museum is located in downtown Baltimore’s historic Mount Vernon Cultural District at North Charles and Centre Streets. At the time of his death in 1931, museum founder Henry Walters left his entire collection of art–including more than 22,000 works of art–to the city of Baltimore. Its permanent collection includes ancient art, medieval art and manuscripts, decorative objects, Asian art, Old Master and 19th-century paintings. The Museum Store, located next to Café Q, offers distinctive gifts, jewelry and books based on the museum’s collections.
