AVAM is the official national museum and education center for self-taught, intuitive artistry. 3 renovated historic industrial buildings house wonders created by farmers, housewives, mechanics, retired folk, the disabled, the homeless, & the occasional neurosurgeon – all inspir...
The exhibits change out periodically but I highly recommend getting a docent to hear the interesting backstories of the artists. By far one of my top two favorite museums in Baltimore.
Amazing! Fabulous exhibit and quirky gift shop. Some original work available too
Crazy and very unique art. Not many places like this around the country. If passing through Baltimore must stop in.
This place is like one big acid trip
Maybe the coolest museum I've ever been to. Make sure to check out all three buildings. The artists work will amaze you.
Great indoor and outdoor wacky found object art. This gift shop is good and cheap too.
Watch your step on the wooden sculpture in the back. #stairs
Gift shop has incredible selection of Moleskin notebooks.
i love the concept of recycling and art. Gave me new ideas to do things! try the restaurant just beside it-mr rains house, awesome food and artsy displays
You can always get into the (best ever) gift shop for free!
Interesting artwork. It's a free museum, you can't beat that!
Cool things to see but its really a quick walk through and not really worth it in my opinion.
Find the chess board, spot the pink elephant.
Awesome for an inner city wedding theme !
The museum is free on Thursday night!!!
Amazing museum! The ship made of toothpicks is one of the most creative, interesting, FANTASTIC piece of art I've ever seen!
Can you find the non-bronze item in the staircase?
I have been to many art museums... Love the creativity and whimsy of the AVAM. Great way to introduce grown up museums to children. So much eye candy.
Great place to see art.
You never know what to expect at the AVAM. Discover a shady nook in the sculpture garden, then browse through artsy treasures at the gift shop, Sideshow. See more: http://bsun.md/b3sf7y
This new age art museum has bunch of young artist doing a more 3-d effect on art. It had a nice gift shop with tons to choose from. 3 floors and another separate area. Cost 14$ def do once
One of the coolest art museums, ever! I <3 this place. (PS: great gift shop too!)
Flicks on the hill .......
If you're a student, make sure you have that ID with you. Five bucks cheaper.
Don't come here when you're tripping. Very, very trippy place. It'll either be the best trip ever or your worst nightmare.
Great gem of B'more. The cafe upstairs serves very good food.
Nice art indeed!
The first Saturday in May, AVAM holds the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Daring souls race their peddle-powered creations around the city and into the Harbor. Not to be missed!
Check out Sideshow for holiday gifts.
Awesome "sideshow" gift shop!
