Houston Museum-Decorative Arts Reviews & Ratings
What a wonderfully quirky museum! I enjoyed a guided tour of the collection, which includes glass pitchers, Tiffany pieces, Toby jugs, and so much more.
Stumbled across the museum walking around the Bluff View district. I stopped in about 20 minutes before they closed and the staff were friendly enough to offer me an abbreviated version of the regular guided tour. Definitely recommend!
It's really great.
Great surprise!!! BUT phone and make sure they are there. Only 2 ladies running it and when I arrived on Wed. At noon they were in a meeting and I had to wait til 12:45. It was worth the wait. Wonderful collection of glass...even some Tiffany pieces. Guided tours are very interesting and played a wonderful anyique music box ... what a treat. They have everything from furnature toys and snuff boxes!
