Activity Overview

An art museum for the untrained artists of the world...how cool is that!? This museum is extremely quirky and wonderfully fun to explore. In many instances, this museum gives an outlet for people who may not have the opportunity to express themselves in this type of venue.

This museum is not for everybody. However, if you can embrace art made from nontraditional items and artists who demonstrate great passion and fantasy in their work, you will enjoy the experience. This place is definitely geared to the quirky artsy type who can think outside of the box. Interestingly enough, many of the artists have psychiatric illnesses. I found this rather intriguing. I think it is a great place to take children to bolster their sense of creativity.
