Worth stopping in periodically just for the standing exhibits, but would highly recommend for the current exhibit on Fabergé and Russian decorative arts. The contents are from the Walters’ own collection, and include two imperial eggs. There’s a fair amount of background included, and some...More

Good place to go . Down side the parking. Very open space . It wasn't busy so that was a plus. The store is small but has a lot on it. If you have small children you may want to avoid.
