On the last day of our visitor’s stay, we had a few extra hours before needing to deliver them to the airports in Baltimore and Washington. Rather than sit and rehash the week, we headed into the maze of one-way streets with colorful intersections of Baltimore, MD to find The Walters Art Museum. My memory of the map from two days ago was different from the signs along the roads, but a few guesses and, “Oh, it’s right here… and look parking right across the street”. We had two hours, which was just right for taking in one section of the museum.
Our party chose to view the Asian art collection, which is displayed in Hackerman House section of the museum. Getting to this wing, is somewhat like getting the museum. Go to the third floor, follow the signs through Renaisance Italy to the mezzanine of the sculpture gallery over the bridge then down the stairs to the “Link”, then back up stairs to the Japanese and Chinese collection, returning to the Link to finish with India, Tibet, and Nepal. Reverse the process to exit, or just stay in the bliss of Narana with Buddha. The bathrooms are just to the lef to Buddha if you get despirate before you find your way out. The rest of the museum will need to wait until more visitors come to BWI airport.
