Frommer's gives The Walters Art Museum an exceptional rating:
- The Walters has always been one of Baltimore's great attractions. – Frommer's
- There is so much to see that a first time visitor may be overwhelmed with the variety of things to see. I look forward to coming back here on my next Baltimore trip to explore it more thoroughly! – Tanders, TripAdvisor
- One of the best small art museums in the country. Underappreciated, but a most lovely treasure. Artworks are lushly displayed (no chrome-on-a-white-wall minimalism here). My favorite sections are ancient Greek and Roman, and, the best, the medieval. – Montag, Judy's Book
