  • Entry is free with no food or drinks allowed beyond front desk. Contemporary art is available to be viewed on floor level as well as downstairs. This is a very small museum compared to MFA, but it is free and within walking distance from parking and the MFA.
  • Love the way the place is laid out, with an almost secret entrance. Always cool and interesting art installations to check out. And it operates on donations so worth your time.
  • The upstairs this past week was incredible. This place is a must see for those who are interested in something differnat, while also on a budget. I would subject parking across from the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and then just pop in there quick before you explore more. It's not very large, but it's free and worth seeing.
  • Small, but worth the trip. Saw an interesting conversation with a Houston photographer, along with a gallery of her work. There was also a breast cancer sculpture exhibit, an algorithm produced pattern drawing exhibit, and a huge exhibit with rolls of recycled paper in the shape of the ocean. Check it out while visiting the museum district.
  • I am a HUGE fan of art museums, and contemporary art is one of my favorites, so I was excited to see that this museum was on the list for the Houston City Pass. Getting to the museum is a relatively pain in the rear process, but once I got there I was really looking forward to a nice afternoon viewing all of the contemporary art. What I found was a small, and underwhelming collection of art. It took me less than two hours to complete the entire museum, and in my opinion is wasn't worth the trip. The cafe food was lifeless and way overpriced. Do yourself a favor, choose something else in your City Pass to enjoy, and ONLY do this one if you have some spare time.
