Fodor's Review

The Walters' prodigious collection of more than 30,000 artworks provides an organized overview of human history over 5,500 years, from the 3rd millennium BC to the early 20th century.Thanks to a grant by the city, admission is free. The original museum (1909) houses major collections of Renaissance and baroque paintings as well as a sculpture court. Two other buildings contain Egyptian, Greek and Roman, Byzantine, and Ethiopian art collections—among the best in the nation—along

with many 19th-century paintings. There are also medieval armor and artifacts; jewelry and decorative works; Egyptology exhibits; a wonderful gift shop; great kids activities in the basement; and a café.

What impresses me the most about this museum is that the Mr. Walters who started it knew many of the artists he collected and in some cases asked an artist to paint a particular scene.
