    To be honest I wasn't expecting much, but man was I surprised! Some of their antiquity artifacts were over 3000 years old. They also have Warhol and Picasso! Their zero photography policy was torture.

    Definitely a must see in Houston. Can't believe you get to see this variety of collections free of charge.

  • The Wall Street Journal

    The Renzo Piano-designed museum, its satellite buildings, and the Rothko Chapel, are so integral to Houston's identity that it's hard to believe that the institution is only 25 years old. Read more

  • The Daytripper

    If art is more your speed, then you shouldn’t miss The Menil Collection, a free museum that is surely one of the best art museums in America. You can see Picasso, Warhol, McGrit, and many more.

    Totally righteous museum.

    SEO Specialist Lauren claims it's more artsy than geeky, but being a geek about art is okay by us. Come here for the free admission and great modern art exhibits.

    This place is so laid back. It's nice to see the exhibits. Also, the outside is good for picnics & chillin' if you want to ready or study.

    The 17,000 year old reindeer artifact is incredible and don't miss out on the surrealist influence room, schedule enough time as the collection is massive!

    Don't touch the art! Don't stand too close to the art! Definitely don't take a picture of the art!

    Keep your eyes open. When celebs come to Houston, they nearly always stop by the Menil. We've spotted Gwyneth Paltrow, Francis Ford Coppola and Andre Leon Talley.

    See the byzantine frescoes before they ship them back to Cyprus!!

    One of the most incredible collections of modern art and antiquities in the country. Start in the stunning Cy Twombly Gallery and follow through to the Byzantine artifacts and paintings.

    The collection always rotates, and if your interested in art then you should check out it's bookstore, just across the road. This cute shop, when dug around in, has some interesting stuff.

    Come during the daylight, museum lit by natural sunlight through transparent roof makes the artwork lovely (and they have lights for at night too)
