    The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston was my favourite place we visited on our 'cultural' day out in Houston. The Paul Ramírez Jonas exhibition was so interesting and commentary surrounding each of the...  more »

    Museum is just across the street from the Fine Arts Museum and worth a quick visit. Only the basement level was open due to preparation for a new show but the downstairs was worth a quick visit.  more »

    This place was kind of boring to us since we do not know anything about art, people walking around just wondering if you are touching stuff, good experience even though we came out as we went in, know...  more »

    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.

    As of May 2016, the lower level is being renovated, so there is only one gallery on the main floor featuring one artist. Quick trip (less than an hour), and all modern art. Always great to find a free museum though, and some of the pieces were pretty interesting.

    Free to get in and pretty cool pieces. Very very small though but worth a quick walk around. Woopwoop!

    If you like contemporary art, it's a good place to go. Not every exhibit is going be spectacular, but it's great that they're giving these artists a place to show.

    Very good entertainment and it doesn't cost anything to get in. 2 levels and sometimes interactive pieces. I'm not much of an art expert, but the pieces are interesting.

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.
