Superb. I took two friends from Washington State there last week. They spent three hours there and would have stayed longer, but it was 9 PM and closing time. They loved it. So many wonderful exhibits. Thursdays are free, thanks to Shell Oil. Parking is limited by construction, but their parking garage is reasonably priced for the area and the main buildings are accessible by tunnel.
A beautiful museum with unique displays. There was plenty to keep me interested for hours. I know digital art is here to stay-I don't get it as "fine" art. My opinion. I would say this is a must on a visit to Houston. I was visiting a friend a MD Anderson. The concierge had coupons for free admission. Check your hotel or hospital if you're visiting. Parking at this museum is 2 almost 3 blocks away. I'm mobility challenged. On a 90+ day, those blocks were tough. No handicap parking closer. Street parking is 2 blocks away (all full).
Nice setup and plenty of different exhibits including Greek and Roman. The Egyptian exhibit was small; however the African was intricate and elaborate. Parking is somewhat difficult. I'd recommend riding the train if possible. Overall, nice experience
World class museum. Went particularly for the exhibit on British royalty going back to Henry VII but they do have a very good collection otherwise. A virtue of a town with lots of oil money.
Amazing place, 6 floors and a cafe inside. So many exhibits to see so little time. I'd recommend 3 hours at least or more to actually get the information from.the art peices. Beautiful place!
