When you think of an art museum, you remember famous painters, sculptors or other craftsmen that have created beautiful artifacts. The American Visionary Art Museum has none of that. Their focus IS art, but an art that has been 'made' by untrained, not professional artist, some who don't even know that what they are creating is art. And this is what makes this museum such a treasure.

Visiting this museum gave us a new insight into life, how it can be perceived, beautified or made more interesting. It was a unique experience for us, one which will not be erased so fast from our memory.

800 Key Hwy, Baltimore, MD 21230, USA
