If you're looking for something a little off the beaten path that's right in the middle of historic Federal Hill I would definitely recommend The Visionary Art's Museum! It's floor to ceiling wacky art work that will totally make you smile. They have different exhibits that come through town so definitely check out their website. If you have time you should also check out Mr. Rain's Funhouse. MRF is the restaurant inside the museum. If you're a foodie with a sense of humor you'll enjoy this whole place. It's not a big place so you can do this on an afternoon date with with the family or a significant other.
You will not forget it!!

The museum is just amazing !! The real gem is the gift shop and the random items you can find. It cost 16 bucks and I can say you will spend about 2 hours at museum. The Banner line (free bus) will drop you off right beside the museum.
Amazing Art Museum

If you are one to frequent art museums and are a little fatigued by all the "classical" style consider this incredible museum. Every work is vibrant and different from every other piece. The stories about the untrained artists make the works that much more intriguing.
Weird, a.k.a. "visionary"

I found this museum to be interesting, though smaller than I expected. While it is obvious that a couple artists featured there are intensely talented, there are other displays where I thought, "I could scribble that." For the price the place is definitely worth visiting and if you keep an open mind you'll definitely find some cool and interesting things. I wouldn't recommend for children/families.
Unique is the word that says it best!

Not always the best place to take the family, but a wonderful place if you want to suggest a quirky and fun first date. The restaurant, Mr. Rain's Fun House, has great specials, fun cocktails and a gorgeous view. The museum's founder is a wonderful philanthropist, so your admission fee might also help a local cause.
