The nation's museum for self-taught, intuitive artistry. Three historic buildings house wonders created by farmers, housewives, mechanics, the disabled, the homeless, as well as the occasional neurosurgeon—all inspired by the fire within.

Named "Best Museum in Maryland" in USA Today and "a temple of outsider art" by the New York Times.
