  • A collection that has different origins, which makes a little rare willingness and displayed objects (that respond more to the whims of donors). Poorly signposted and give you a very poor map, which makes it more difficult to visit. Not there are audio guides. For the price of admission should give you something more. The exhibitions of the moment are separate cobran.

  • Every time I go there, I enjoy the masterpiece of great architect "Mies Van Der Rohe". There's a great collection in the museum. You'll enjoy being here.
  • The place is like any other fine arts museum, not saying it's a bad place. Each month (I could be wrong) they bring in something new or so. There was one day I came to MFAH and they had Legos on a table spread out for people who want to create something, and I thought that pretty neat.
  • Absolutely love this place! Had a TON of originals my wife or I had ever seen. Michelangelo, Picasos, Dalis! LOVE it! And the tunnel connecting underground is super trippy :)
  • Multilevel, multilocation world class Museum. Rembrandts, Caravaggios, Claesz hang from its walls. Great architecture and use of space. Special exhibitions are little pricey but worth it.
  • We had our school field trip here and had a great time admiring the art. A friend of ours knew all the trivia and made the trip so worthwhile. Definitely a stop if you're a tourist who appreciates art. A Metro Rail ride away from the downtown underground food court!
