Don’t miss the gift shop!

A very unique art museum. This is not your typical art museum, and even if you are not an art lover you will find yourself getting drawn in. Save time for the gift shop, like no other museum shop you have ever seen.
Fantastic, inside and out!

I love taking out of town guests to the AVAM and then up Fed Hill for a great view of the city. The visionary has so much interesting art, I am always there when they change their collection. On the surface, most of the art just looks nuts, but when you actually sit and read every artist's backstory, the works become so much more fascinating. Also: Best. Giftshop. Ever. And Giftshop is free if you don't want to go to the museum.

Best Museum in Baltimore

Best museum in Baltimore. All art comes from people who never have had formal training but the work is outstanding. The stories about the artists are unbelievable. Some of the shows are heart wrenching and very emotional. Certain viewings change and some work is permanent. The museum sits at the base of Federal Hill which is a quick climb outside and at the top is one of the best views of the city. There is a great restaurant in the museum called Mr. Rain's Fun House (on the top floor) that has a great outdoor patio. Wonderful wine and cocktails. Great staff. The museum gift shop on the first floor is one of the best places in the city to buy unique gifts. There is the main museum area and another area outside next door that has more unique large art. Make a day of it.
Best Museum Anywhere

The variety of the collection at the AVAM is unparalleled. This is mostly very sophisticated folk art with amazing stories behind the eclectic collection. It's a must see!
