  • Ehhh very boring I thought this would be a cool thing to do while in Houston based off the pics I seen on google. However once there I regret going wasn’t many great exhibitions to see. I appreciate the fact it was free and the effort the artist and workers put in.
  • Man hands down this is the best art museum always free always great underground artist and 2 levels is always better than 1
  • Weird but interesting place. Lots of thought-provoking pieces
  • Very cool place with thought provoking exhibits. There's only two floors, so a limited collection of items on display. However, it's nice that many of their pieces are interactive. It's good to visit because it's free but It's not something I'd spend money on. Could spend less than an hour there. Parking is free along side roads. Gift shop is super cool with unique finds.
  • The contemporary art exhibits are always magnificent. The entrance is free of charge. Themes can provide an effective structure for engaging with art.
