    A few interesting pieces in a small museum. The highlight was getting to watch artists work and talking to them. That made it well worth the visit.

    This is a great exhibit space and has well curated exhibitions. The hallway is always as well done as the large exhibition space. The best museum shop in Houston.

    I went to an event here recently so I can't say too much about how it is day to day, but it served as a great venue, very well organized, inviting space, I did see their gift shop which included some beautiful sculptures and handicrafts, I was especially fond of the outdoor space.

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.
