Discover our Tour Themes

Special Exhibition: Activating the Renaissance (available beginning 4/27)
Explore contemporary works of art, by primarily Maryland-based artists, in conversation with major masterpieces within the Walters Italian Renaissance and Baroque galleries. How do works from different centuries explore the same themes through the figurative arts?

Special Exhibition: Majolica Mania 
Travel back to the Victorian era with Majolica Mania, an exhibition that highlights the beauty and inventiveness of a once wildly popular ceramic. Through these vibrant ceramics, explore themes including the natural world, foods and fashions, class, labor, immigration, and the human cost of majolica’s production.

Highlights of the Walters Collection
In 1931, Henry Walters bequeathed to the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, “for the benefit of the public,” the collections built by him and his father. Discover highlights from this collection and more recent acquisitions to the Walters Art Museum.

Enjoy the galleries of the Walters Art Museum at your own pace, including our  current exhibitions.
