  • How many other beer can houses will you ever see? If you are a fan of kitschy folk art, like beer, or simply have a good sense of humor, this little house will be a delightful visit.  more »
  • The Beer Can House created by John Milkovisch from 1968 to 1988. At the site of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art open 12pm-5pm Sat/Sun, admission $5.00 children 12 and under free. We didn't go...  more »

  • This is a Houston Establishment and a must-do for any visitor or local resident. The house itself is immaculately preserved, so if you own one of these 50s homes, it's great to see the original construction and compare it to your own. I learned a lot about my house just by visiting the Beer Can House; it's worth the price of admission.
  • Definitely worth taking a look at. Stop by for some quick pics. Pretty crazy! Didn’t go in because it was closed.
  • Folk art, or just home improvement, the Houston's beer can house was born in 1968, when owner John Milkovisch started adding beer cans to the house as aluminum siding. Now operated by the Orange Show, visitors are requested to donate a dollar or two to visit the property. For $5, you can tour the inside of the house.
  • I FINALLY saw it. The house was pretty Meh. Checked off. Moving on
  • 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.
