American Visionary Art Museum - Review

This is America’s National museum for raw and intuitive Art. The beautiful museum in an equally beautiful setting, the mission is to be beautiful inside out. The government granted this small piece of land in the name of the museum on a condition that the organizers and officials will clean the copper junk from a former factory as well as the waste of a whiskey refinery. The team went on to finish this task successfully, thus gaining the title of the National Museum.

The museum now covers a huge area with thousands of permanent exhibits. This includes works of famous visionary artists such as Ho Baron, Nek Chand, Howard Finster, Ted Gordon, Gregory Warmack, Clyde Jones, Leonard Knight, William Kureleck, Mary Proctor, Leo Sewell, Judith Scott, Vollis Simpson, Ben Wilson and many others. Another specialty of this museum is that there is no permanent curator in here. They bring guest curators to enhance the charm of the various shows held here. This is altogether one of the most popular attractions of the city.

  • We spent a few hours here walking through so many interesting and wonderful creative works. The art is fun and inspiring, the stories of the artists absolutely captivating. Great for a date or a family, although some works might be a bit mature for children. The museum shop has a wonderful assortment of interesting things as well, plenty of art at an affordable price as well as little kitschy items, a neat place to find very unique gifts.

  • This was different. It wasn't your normal art museum. The collections seemed eclectic and some of the paintings seemed like a 6 year old drew them. We walked around for an hour and then left. Some of it was cool, but most wasn't our style.

  • One of my favorite museums in Baltimore. The exhibits are always thought provoking and beautiful. It seems they rotate exhibits on a regular basis which makes it a perfect museum to go to a few times a year. The gift shop is wonderful but I do wish they had a book curating the exhibits. They have a wide selection of books- but I would have loved to take part of the museum exhibit home with me.

  • Over all this is a really great museum. The collection spans three buildings and has a great range of pieces. The mechanical pieces were a favorite of my group and we definitely doesn’t a fair amount of time there. There is pay street parking right out back of the museum, but we were able to find free street parking on the other side of Federal Hill Park - which is also worth a visit for the view of the city.

  • A great place to spend a quite evening. This is a hidden gem near Baltimore harbor. Cheap entry tickets with so much to explore in the museum. Definitely must visit if you are in Baltimore.
