Contemporary Arts Museum Houston - Review

The Contemporary Arts Museum is perhaps one of the most well-known museums of the city. The place is home to rolling contemporary art exhibitions from around the world. Located in the heart of the city in Montrose it is a part of the cultural core of the city.

Contemporary Artists from all over the world have been featured here in the past and many others will continue to be featured in the future. And since the institution does not collect art, you will always be able to see something new at the place. The CAMH building itself is quite a lovely sight and the art around it is also worth a see. The ever-changing displays are a real treat so if you are an art-lover or a culture seeker, do visit this remarkable place.

  • I took my teenagers for some culture and light hearted fun. Great since it's small and the pieces are always a great way to get conversation and fun, interesting statements. Perfect size to keep their interest, about an hour or so. Parking in the streets around the museum want hard to find. I told my boys it was a great first date option!

  • the pieces were interesting to look at. Because they changed the exhibits every couple of months or so, it is always worth visiting and it's free so extra points .

  • A relatively small space, but nevertheless very warm and interesting contemporary museum. Street level consists of a single space display and lower level a museum shop with a smaller space. During the visit a well curated display San Antonio was taking place. Warmly recommended for anyone interested in what is going on this part of the country.

  • Exhibits are always changing. I love to come here on off days. Always interesting

  • This place is such a fun place to visit. It's not enormous, but it is large enough to spend a couple of hours getting to enjoy some really unique exhibits. There is a large room upstairs that featured a San Antonio themed collection when i most recently went. There was such a variety of beautiful sculptures, paintings, and even video pieces. Im not going to pretend I'm familiar with these artists or follow their work, but there was such a nice variety of things to see, and it was really cool. The much smaller downatairs level had an exhibit from Cary Liebowitz (sorry if it is misspelled) and it was awesome. Manuscripts, paintings, sculptures, even decorated plates were everywhere downstairs and they were so vibrant and interesting. I could have easily spent more time down there and would like to go back again before the collection moves on. The building itself is in Montrose, so parking is a little hard to come by, but the museum is easy to find and the admission is free. Its not very far off the Metro Rail line, and once you're there you are near other museums, plenty of restaurants, and other entertainment. If you are like me and havent been to a lot of museums or are intimidated by art because you are unfamiliar with it, this is a great place to start out. No snobbery, no paintings that are 300 years old created by someone half a world away. Friendly folks work here and the pieces are really accessible. Go here and check it out!
