|About these ratings|
This Federal Hill art museum, which was once a whiskey warehouse, beckons to those with eclectic tastes. Upon entry, visitors are greeted by a 55-foot-tall "Whirligig," wind-powered configuration, which sets the tone for the quirky art displayed inside. The American Visionary Art Museum exhibits explore a wide range of topics, including the impact of technology on everyday life, the power of story-telling, race and gender. One TripAdvisor reviewer highlights the colorful, multi-dimension collection as appealing to adults and kids alike, adding: "If you like non-traditional, hands-on, or funky art exhibits, then this is the museum for you."
The museum opens its doors Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Adult admission costs $15.95; admission for children ages 7 and up costs $9.95; children 6 and younger can visit for free. The easiest way to access the American Visionary Art Museum is by walking south, along Baltimore's Inner Harbor to Federal Hill.
