  • I finally made the drive to Marfa to see what all the fuss was about and I'm so glad that I did. Chinati was one of a kind. Very friendly people and the location was huge. You could spend an afternoon...  more »

  • A must see if in Marfa. Beautiful scenery, art, and history explained by wonderful guides. I would recommend the long tour if your schedule allows it- it takes you to three different locations managed by the foundation around town with a lunch break. You will see literally hundreds of pieces of art on this tour from many different artists, and there is so much variety that even non art lovers couldn't get bored. The tour requires walking from building to building, which while always along sidewalks, could be exhausting for some on hot days. Small children likewise could get tired and would need to be watched- the art is not behind glass or cordons.
  • This place is very neat! The foundation really appreciates the communities involvement. I loved the simplicity of the art installments it brings a sense of order. A great day trip.
  • One of the best art destinations in the world! Each visit is different as the light and landscape change with seasons and times of day. A truly inspiring place.
  • You must get the full tour pass if you have the time. The guides are patient and very thorough. They were also able to answer our various questions!
  • Epic art space and impressive collection of large scale art. A must visit!
