INCREDIBLE museum and such a fun perspective on art. The science additions were such a treat and a great challenge for my concepts of artistic expression.

Parking a bit of a problem, less expensive to park at a meter so takes lots of quarters with you. The museum spans 2 buildings so wear comfortable walking shoes. Make sure to walk all the way around the buildings and to look up to discover gems obvious and hidden. If you like mosaics and mirrors, you'll love the murals. Be sure to take a camera with you for the outdoor exhibits though you are not allow to take any indoor shoots.

Allow plenty of time to read everything! It's nice to go on a day when it's not too crowded, like Easter :)

The American Visionary Art Museum is an awesome museum with colorful and fun art. There is a permanent display on the first floor, and a constant rotation of various artists on the top 2 floors. Their gift shop is full of quirky items where everyone can browse with the utmost enjoyment. Be sure to wander over to the adjacent 2 buildings that are also full of bigger than life kinetic sculptures and hands on small sculptures that you can watch move with the touch of a button. There is metered parking adjacent to the museum that is quite convenient. After touring the museum our family always ventures to the top of Federal Hill for a fantastic view of the Inner Harbor.

It's intense! But terrific. If you want to join as a member (and have unlimited visits for a year), they'll deduct the price of your admission from the membership fee.

From Our Editors

The American Visionary Art Museum devotes its space to original work by self-taught artists who honed their craft—often unintentionally—while operating on the outskirts of the formal art world. As temporary exhibitions explore a particular artist or theme in depth, the permanent collection displays thousands of powerful and often whimsical items, such as Andrew Logan's mirror-winged Black Icarus, or the haunting Applewood Figure, an emaciated sculpture said to wince whenever someone eats a piece of fruit. The museum spreads its arresting pieces throughout three historical buildings, including the expansive main building, which boasts a reflective mirrored-mosaic exterior and neighbors the Tall Sculpture Barn, an ex-whiskey warehouse fully equipped with 45-foot ceilings for large-scale projects. A wildflower garden—complete with meditation chapel—and a sculpture plaza featuring a 55-foot whirligig beckon visitors to the museum's outdoor space, where envious clouds shape themselves into crude versions of Pietà. Completing any trip, the museum's Sideshow gift shop stuffs shopping bags with an ever-rotating collection of eclectic artwork, jewelry, toys, and more.
