Member Tour: Fifty Years of Shopping at World

World’s Fairs on both sides of the Atlantic profoundly shaped the tastes and buying habits of William and Henry Walters during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Jo Briggs, associate curator of 18th- and 19th-century art, discusses the cultural and artistic significance of these international exhibitions.

Members have the opportunity to join a Walters expert for an intimate, members-only tour. Present your membership card at the Information/Ticketing Desk, then meet in the Centre Street inner lobby. Registration is not required. Tour schedules and topics are subject to change.
