AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Walters is a cornerstone of the Baltimore arts and museum scene, yet it is also barely known outside the city’s borders. Let’s remedy this grave injustice. Located in pretty Mount Vernon, this Baltimore museum’s interior resembles an airy classical Greek temple. It’s a space that allows for and encourages a sense of freedom of movement, both of people and ideas. As you proceed through the exhibitions, you’re treated to an impressive collection of historic art, so extensive that this is the sort of place you could feasibly consider an archaeology museum. The works from the Islamic world, Asia and pre-Colombian America are Smithsonian worthy. The European galleries of Renaissance, Baroque and 18th and 19th century work will keep you enraptured for hours. Did we mention admission is free? Why aren’t you here already? Jeez.
