The Menil Collection consists of an array of various art objects collected by Dominique and John de Menil. Their amazing collection of art and craft has become a famous Houston attraction due to its vastness and variedness.

Antiques, paintings, sculptures, decorative objects, photos and even books have been painstakingly collected since the 1940s by this duo. The brilliant collection has luckily been put up on display to the public. Pablo Picasso, Rene Magritte, Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse are just some of the many artists that you will be able to meet here through their paintings.

The collection goes across several periods and styles. While you will get to see art from the medieval or byzantine eras you will also see modern styles such as cubism and minimalism. There is also a very striking collection African Arts and crafts which is a must see while here. The photographs and sketches are also evocative. If you love art and history, this is the perfect place to visit for you.

  • I went with my African Art class yesterday and happened to go to the museum during the opening of the brand new Drawing Building. The art galleries were extremely beautiful and well organized. There is a large collection of Modern art which is incredible, and the Cy Twombly gallery was a pleasant surprise! For a first time visit, it was overwhelmingly beautiful. Only negative comment is the strict staff and no photography rule inside the galleries.

  • GOD I LOVE THIS PLACE. It's intimate. You have an opportunity to really look at the art up close without a ton of people hovering around taking pictures of it. There's also really great green space nearby for a picnic and a cool gift shop across the street. Definitely a hidden gem in Houston.

  • This is a true gem of a museum with a superb collection. I especially enjoy the Magritte paintings and look forward to seeing the new Drawing Institute that will open with a show of Jasper Johns drawings. Well worth a visit!

  • Best place to kill a day and see some amazing art. Also this beautiful tree sits just outside that touches the grass on one side. Just a beautiful welcoming space.

  • Anyone who is giving strong 1 star ratings is a bit too emotional. Let’s start with the easy 5-star - this museum is free providing access to contemporary masters that most other galleries would charge for. The collection also contains antiquities from around the globe, tastefully presented. It is one of the most inclusive collections I’ve ever seen and is a pillar of the Houston art scene and a huge source of community. This is the must-not miss of visiting the city if you have any interest in art.
