This is a one of a kind museum that is hardly found in any other place in the world. The kind of art that is patronized over here is abstract and whimsical. The name comes from the fact that a differently creative art form is encouraged to gain popularity over here. The best part about this museum is that male and female artists are given equal positions and respect for their skills.
The museum is further divided into a few parts such as the art gallery with several eye catching pieces of whimsical art and prints. The other and more important part is the marine house which has a fantastic entrance framed with very colorful sea shells and other sea creatures. The interior of this house consists of lovely colorful objects that make the place looks like its celebrating Christmas every day.

Marietta Museum - Art And Whimsy Reviews & Ratings
Most wonderful place to visit. Staff are so kind and informative. I would highly recommend if your in the area stop by and see all the pieces of Art on display. The Flower Gardens, especially, my favorite, the orchid, are stunning! Had a very good time with my grandchildren, will definitely go back again. My granddaughter has even asked me to call to see if they can finish painting a bench back.🙂
Give me a five star rating although I don't know why. It is part whimsical, ,hot Museum and pause Park. Even this computer iis confused as you can tell by the Miss Spelling's and changes no matter what I do. The first time around it called it a pot Museum and it is gone from there into an arc of science fiction. If you have nothing to do go visit . You will have to figure out when they are open. Their hours are whimsical dot-dot-dot You see what I mean?
Absolutely fascinating museum worthy of everyone seeing. It is only open Thursday thru Saturday, has ample free parking, just a very short walk from the highly recommended La Quinta Hotel, and across the street from the Barnum College of Art and design. Don't miss it!
Fun place with cool artwork. Docents are great and know so much about the stories behind the art. Too bad it's not open more.
If you are feeling down this is the place to go. There are so many things to look at. Make sure you give a donation so this wonderful place goes on.
