Foursquare Tips

  • Only the coolest place in the world.
  • Go to American Visionary Art Museum and check out all the cool art!
  • Check out the weird outsider art exhibitions. Totally a fun experience and unlike any art museum I've ever seen.
  • FREE!! The exterior of the American Visionary Art Museum is almost as interesting as what you'll find inside. The building is surrounded by unique and curious sculptures.
  • You never know what to expect at the AVAM. Discover a shady nook in the sculpture garden, then browse through artsy treasures at the gift shop, Sideshow. See more:
  • Check out Sideshow for holiday gifts.
