We were intrigued by the description of this museum as being intuitive and created by outsiders -- those who taught themselves their art. The small museum cost $5, which we happily donated. Unusual and thought-provoking paintings and sculptures dominated the first gallery. In the back,...More

Nice little museum. Totally lives up to its name - Intuitive & Outsider Art. Unassuming from the outside.

This gallery has really developed into a significant show-place for those who do and did art naturally. Its exhibitions are well mounted and always a fascinating expose of our inner selves.

This is a smaller museum with rotating exhibits but the examples of art were really nice. The location is nice with plenty of street parking (paid) and restaurants around.

Intuit is a very small museum -- about the size of two large galleries in the Art Institute. However, it offers art not found at the Art Institute. For those in the know about Outsider Art, you will be right at home. For those unfamiliar...More

It is at 25-30 minutes from Union Station and I decided to walk as it was a nice sunny day. When I reached the building where it is located, by looking at one big red mysterious door (with no name or a sign 'enter here')...More

I'm not sure I feel it worth the $5 "suggested" donation. Right now there is a cool bottle cap sculpture exhibit and some amazing hand drawn (from memory!) maps by a Cincinnati artist as well as the Henry Darger room. Gift shop is very cool.More

This was easy to get to on the blue line. The museum is across the street. We saw an exhibit of several outsider artists. Most of the work was fascinating. The museum also has recreated the room that Henry Darger occupied when he was drawing...More
