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.

American Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore Reviews
Love this museum! Always eye catching. Every level has eye popping art. Clean cool bathroom. There’s a cafe upstairs, very beautiful! (Never eaten there) Right by federal hill. If you’re a Bank of America card holder, you can get in free every 1st weekend of the month!!!!!! But you have to mention it in order to get the deal! They won’t mention it for you!
This was the highlight to my trip to Baltimore. This holds some of the finest examples of modern off-beat artworks that fill your soul with joy. Three levels of paintings, carvings, statues and curios that come from fresh perspectives and beautiful minds. Some might call it weird or quirky - I call it heaven sent. The gift shop is just as glorious - packed full of goodies, including original art; and the upstairs restaurant / Café is a great place to refuel - full of art and friendly service! Loved this place so much!!
Oh man do I love this museum. It has amazing art you are not going to see anywhere else. The kids loved it. Yeah even at 6 years old! Try that MoMA! The gift shop is filled with kitsch (love Bal'mor, hon!) and also really great books. Get a membership and come back whenever you need an escape from reality or a (wildly) alternate perspective on the world.
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 a very nice museum with different art and a different perspective on what is considered art. I really enjoyed the 3D exhibit and the beaded dresses and sculptures. If you love art you need to visit.
