“For the benefit of the public.”

Those words from our founder Henry Walters set the tone at the Walters Art Museum. From our free admission to the way we present world-class art, what happens here happens with the visitor in mind.

The works on view reflect the height of human creativity and artistry from around the world, and the range of ways visitors can experience the collection is vast—from walk-in tours of exceptional exhibitions and installations to programs for visitors of all ages to the conservation window. Through this unique combination of great art and great programs, the Walters aims to provide visitors with engaging experiences and fresh insights into past civilizations and contemporary cultures in all their complexity.

All of this happens in a museum that is not just in Baltimore, but of Baltimore. When you visit the Walters, you experience a stunning panorama of thousands of years of art from around the world in one of Baltimore’s most iconic neighborhoods.
