Trip Advisor Get thee to this art museum!
Oct 24, 2014 by: LauraDzw from 
The AVAM has an eye catching exterior with sculptures and a mirrored mosaic. Inside, they have a diverse collection of modern art. They also have an amazing gift shop. It is filled with a treasure trove of five and dime knick knacks and original art. A fun place to dig for unique goodies. The food at the restaurant was ok, but you'll get more bang for your buck by going to one of the many nearby Inner Harbor restaurants.

Trip Advisor It's the outside that counts

Very interesting artwork. I preferred the whimsy of items on the outside. Most, if not all, the artwork originates from artists that stumbled across their gift or heard a 'calling'.

The AVAM attracts from first sighting with fascinating exterior murals that shimmer in the sunshine and the fun of the whirligig. The exterior sculpture court has a number of interesting sculptures made with found materials. The display of kinetic sculptures which parade or race annually was entrancing and very fun. The featured show included works of mystics and visionaries as well as people in institutions and much outside of the mainstream. It was all informative and many were objects were amazing.

Trip Advisor Nice but not sure if well suited for young kids

I liked it but my kids were bored after a very short time. More a museum for adults I think. The collection is very diversified and you need time to appreciate everything.
