There are some reviews you could give a few numbers to at the same time. The AVAM is one of them. Some of the work at the museum is brilliant. Actually, most is really exceptional, and more so because I've never seen anything like it before. But recognizing that this is a museum of work by untrained artists, some of the work isn't even refrigerator-worthy, and the fact that it shared the same space with untrained but brilliantly visionary work really dampened my experience.

Don't miss this museum during your trip to Baltimore. When there with our kids and they really loved it. I can't say enough good things about it! There is a very good restaurant on the top floor and a fun gift shop as well as a small but nice outdoor garden area.
Great spot for a wedding

Spectacular spot for a wedding! The brick barn was incredible! Walking distance from the Harbor and numerous hotels! A MUST see
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.
