    The Hackerman house is currently closed for renovations, but a new exhibit is opening this weekend that focuses on the Walters themselves so the 4th floor will be reopened but changed from previous.

    The museum is free except for special exhibits and its huge. Don't forget to check out the hackerman house for the Asian art. It's tricky to get to so ask for directions.

    Look for the extraordinary Rubens Vase, carved in high relief from a single piece of agate, was most likely created in an imperial workshop.

    If you want to go into the ticketed exhibits it's worth buying a membership since it's good a year from purchase and gives you free tickets every time you come. Pays for itself!

    If you're having a bad day or just need a smile, go to the 4th Level (19th Century) and there is a giant painting of the most serene cow. I have named him George, and he will make you smile.
