The most cutting edge museum
Aug 17, 2014 by: Aviv52 from Louisville, Kentucky, United States
This is beyond modern art-- this is an experience viewing artists who are traditional based craftsmpeople with different ideas or some so far out of the box that it is tough to wrap ones mind around it. There is no other museum like it if you are up for being stimulated and challenged.
Amazing Art Museum: Your Eyes Will Thank You

My son, daughter and I visited the American Visionary Art Museum last Fall. What an amazing museum! We spent several hours visiting. We loved seeing the outside permanent art that adorns the building. Inside, there are so many different exhibits to look for. We spent several hours here and dint get to see everything. We visited all of the different buildings, too. Make sure to check to see what exhibits are going to be there.
Off the wall

The Visionary Arts Museum is devoted to displaying the work of outsider art. Few of them have any art schooling and for a number of them the first thought that comes to mind is OCD, obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have seen works there carved form pencils, assembled from toothpicks or stitched from fabric. I is located within walking distance of most of the inner harbor attractions and is a fun place to visit. The gift shop is filled with a variety of items at all prices. Looking for a gag gift, it is just the place and they also carry works from some of the artists.
Be prepared to be challenged!

This museum was highly recommended by a local. The AAA book said to plan on 1 1/2 hours, but we spent 3+. would have stayed longer, but the guard was patiently waiting for us to leave. We were challenged in every way possible & revisited many displays a second or third time. Plenty of displays for all ages. One of our group LOVED the Gift Shop and left delighted with a full bag of FUN.
