Well curated, outsider art, highly original. Make sure to visit both buildings and outdoor sculpture garden
Wonderful event venue!

Loved the artwork of the not so famous artists. The space is really just perfect for a big party. Right next to Federal Hill Park. Easy water taxi ride from the inner harbor.

Incredibly imaginative and colorful. My favorite art museum in Baltimore, DC area. I can't get enough.
where the different drummer calls home

unfortunately, they were gearing up for a new exhibition so there wasn't much to see in the main building but got the idea of the place. The permanent collection is not to be missed as is the gift shop. It is an experience in and of itself. I wish I had gotten more little junk pieces to make my own unique stuff. I do highly recommend going there and reading what the artists have written. It is good that these talented people have a place to be recognized. The staff is friendly and seem to enjoy being there. catch the banner line across the street from the visitors center. the museum is across the street from the rusty scupper and on the banner route ending at fort mc henry. the building is a jewel and the bird family is a joy. you can see the wheel art from a distance..You are not allowed to take pictures at all. the banner bus does not stop at the door but the museum is wheelchair accessable.
Weird, weird and yet fun

Although part of the museum was closed when we visited, we did see art produced by artists on the edge (they kind of make van Gogh look like he had a good life). Some we liked, some we laughed and some we cried over. Sometimes the blurbs about the artist seemed odd as well. If you want something unique, not the tried and true, this may be your place.
