  • Intriguing house to stop and learn how one man could think of siding the house with beer cans and decor. We stopped around 3:30PM on Saturday, August 12,2017. We walked around outside before stepping ...  more »
  • One of the most unique sights in Houston. If you go during correct hours, you can get on the property and go in the backyard and even inside. There's something to see around every corner!  more »
  • The outside of the house and grounds are very neat to see. The cost was $5 a person to go inside the home. There wasn't a lot to see but there were some displays and informative books, also some art o...  more »

  • It's always a great place to take guests. Would be a five except we understood there was no charge unless you wanted a guided tour. We were asked to pay regardless... not the full amount. Always happy to donate, so was definitely willing to pay. Would be nice to know up-front, just in case others aren't as willing when they arrive.
  • This place is so cool! It's history is even better! I just wish it had better hours.
  • Place looked interesting from outside. On Google it showed it was open, but when we reached their and called up to check since their was no signs as from where we should enter, the lady answered that they open to public during weekends except in summers when they are open during weekdays too. Well their website doesn't mention the same. Information regarding their timings according to the seasons should be made available on website. As we were only for a day in Houston we couldn't go inside to check the place.
  • Eh, it's neat to drive by. Nice idea. Glad its there. But don't go out of your way.
  • Love the character of this piece of art, as well as all the little details that surrounds it, inside the house you can see the real deal! All the history behind its construction, a pretty funny video from owners, tools used and few art pieces. Definitely worth the 5 bucks I paid to see... if you prefer you can ask for a guided tour for extra 5. And souvenirs are good as gifts. For those without a ride like I was, just take canal memorial metro bus (N°20) either way from downtown or from Galleria area.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
