  • Just pulled up outside the house to have a look, didn't have time to actually visit. Maybe next time but there is a small charge.  more »
  • Beautiful house in cans, a rarity, original, just of the road that day work that prevented to hear the noise of cans to the wind

  • If you are passing around, worth killing curiosity. Nothing more than a House lined with beer cans. Watch out for the visit, are very restricted, the day I went, it was closed. Nor was upset.

  • 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.

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.
