1. Randyland 1501 Arch St, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Officially the home of artist Randy Gilson, Randyland is also a free museum in the northside's Mexican War Streets district that is open to the public. Guests at this wonderland of found objects and original paintings can view everything from murals to neon painted guard lions and plastic garden swans. Standing out like a beacon of rainbow color in the Pittsburgh's oft-dreary landscape, Randyland has also been called the most-painted house in the east.
