Choosing Best Art Places

Recommended Posts

My partner and I are planning to go around Houston and explore its wonderful places. We're thinking of visiting museums and art places. Do you have any recommendation for this? Any comment would surely be helpful.

Absolutely the Menil would be top of my list. I think they just reopened after a remodel. Amazing collection for a private museum, from ancient Greek artifacts and African tribal art to Surrealists like Magrite. And it's free (donation suggested).
