Essential Information

800 Key Hwy.
Baltimore, MD 21230

A life-size, interactive chess set of sculpted metal aliens and angels, an 8-foot Cosmic Galaxy Egg, an annual Kinetic Sculpture Race featuring wacky, human-powered works of art designed to travel across various terrains: This isn’t your typical art museum.

KIDBIT: Check out programs like AVAM in the Afternoon and FREE after-school workshops with the Enoch Pratt Free Library let kids explore the exhibits, meet the artists and create their own visionary works.

FAMILY MUST-SEES: With wild sights at every turn, family-fave standouts include outlandish, human-powered vehicles from the museum’s annual Kinetic Sculpture Race — including Fifi, a mammoth pink poodle. The Cabaret Mechanical Theatre brings handcrafted robots to life with a crank or button, and Wayne Kusy’s Lusitania is a massive ship model made of 193,000 toothpicks.
