We visited the Faberge exhibit. Very nice. Easy walkthrough. The highlight, though, was wandering through the three Rooms of Wonders a la 19th Century Room of Curiosities. The fact that the Walters is free is a definitely selling point!

Wonderful collections in an easy to visit space. All the little rooms make it not as overwhelming as other museums. Look for the occasional performance by Peabody students/staff in the sculpture gallery.

The Hackerman House of Walters Art Museum housed one of the finest Asian Art collection. Besides Asian Arts, Walters Art Museum has an amazing collection of antiquities from all over the world. Don't miss this when visiting Baltimore.

We really enjoyed our visit. You just need to be aware of parking. We got lucky and found it on a miter right next to the museum.
