Go to the AVAM and spend an afternoon with the unique art exhibits. Plan to spend just as much time looking through the gift shop as you will in the actual museum!

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 !
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.
Check out the exhibit on flatulence!
