Absolutely one of the most interesting and unique collections of art. We went on Mother's Day and spent hours reading about the pieces and enjoying the experience. I will go again because it is obvious that you cannot take it all in at one time!

This is a very interesting place. Kind of an arts and crafts museum with all sorts of wierd stuff. Like toothpick sculptures, Rube Goldberg apparati etc. Kids will love it and big kids too.

This is a fantastic museum for lovers of art and humanity of all ages. It's also a great place to take a class or check out the Kinetic Sculpture Race the first Saturday of May! Love it!

Big fans of outsider art. We were not disappointed. Especially enjoyed Matt Sesow's floor. Spent a couple hours exploring the two buildings and grounds.

If you love Visionary Art as I do this museum is well worth a special trip. It is a bit off the beaten path on the far side of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Parking is not always easy, meters on Key Highway or at the Rusty...More

Tired of a typical museum? Head over to this unique experience! There are no "famous " artists here - just a collection of incredibly talented men and women, many of whom have faced challenging circumstances. Each room contains a kaleidoscope of color, texture, imagination and...More
