  • Not to my taste, but what do you expect for free! There are two ‘galleries’ for rotating exhibits. The Mark Knowles exhibit was upstairs. And, there was a small exhibit downstairs that literally consi...  more »
  • Didn't expect the museum to be as good as it was. Nice selection of art for viewing. Some obscure artists as well as more well known artists available.  more »
  • External viewing is more attractive than inside. This museum is really small and exhibits few. There were only a few people in the audience, and I only stayed a few minutes. I saw other people leaving even for 5 minutes.

  • 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.

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.
