    Web Developer Rachel: "I've always liked art museums, and the MFAH is definitely one of my new favorites. It helps that you can also go see films here if you don't feel like walking around."

    The MFA folks don't allow bike parking on the railings and poles around the campus. You'll find a bike rack hidden in the parking garage or you can store it at the coat check in the Beck Building.

    유명한 화가들의 유명하지 않은 작품들이 있음. 규모는 큰 편이라고 하나 방마다 서있는 관리자 수가 적은 것으로 봐서는 진품이 아닌 것들이 더 많이 걸려있을지도...
