Museum Of Fine Arts Houston - Review
The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston has a wide variety of Fine art objects that are worth a see. The Museum is home to some of the most striking art from all over the world. Art objects from Asia, Africa, Europe, and South Pacific grace the displays of this abundant museum.
The interesting thing is that there are around 65000 art objects in the collection so you are sure to be spoilt for choice. From paintings to sculptures to crockery to furniture, the artefacts are endless. “The Rock” by Vincent Van Gogh, Self Portrait by Andy Warhol, Bracelet by Peter Chang and the Head of Poseidon in Bronze are just some of the many highlights of the museum so do not miss them.
The Sculpture Park which has a bunch of eccentric, lovely designs is also nearby and a definite must-see.

Museum Of Fine Arts Houston, Houston Reviews
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).
An absolutely stunning museum that is a must see in the Houston area. Located in a central part of the Museum district, it's easy to reach by public transport from downtown on the light rail. There are 2 massive buildings housing the largest collection of art work I have ever seen. It will take more than 1.5 hours just to walk through the entire museum without reading any of the descriptions. The art work spans a wide variety of time and geographies but is laid out in a fashion that's not too confusing. The special exhibitions are worth checking out as they are extremely unique and unlikely to be found anywhere else. Pricing is extremely reasonable and well worth the cost of admission. Staff are extremely friendly as well.
This is the best-curated museum I have been to. The descriptions introducing the exhibits and accompanying each piece really brought them to life. I was there by myself and kept wishing I had someone with me so I could say, "Look a this! Did you see this?!" I went after a conference. They are open late on Thursdays (and admission is free!). Two hours was not enough time. I hope I return to Houston soon so I can spend more time there. Easy to reach on the Metro.
If I could give 0 stars I would. I have visited this museum on multiple occasions and hadn’t had a complaint until today. I went to attend the bamboo exhibit this afternoon. Upon arriving we got noticed a large line of people outside the door. We got into the line of people who had not bought tickets yet. After waiting in line for quite a while and watching people who had bought tickets being let in multiple times. I asked the employee who was directing people at what point would the non-ticket holders be allowed to purchase tickets, his response was he didn’t know. What was the point of having people stand out in a line if you weren’t sure when they would be allowed to purchase tickets? Also why were we made to stand outside, when with any other exhibit you can go inside and purchase tickets and wait in line. This was very poor planning on the museums part. I will no long attend this museum because of this poor customer service.
What a wonderful experience! The most recent exhibition was amazing. We didn’t finish seeing everything in one day because of how huge the museum is. I recommend you go early to avoid the afternoon crowd. The world history and beautiful art were breathtaking and captivating. The MFA is also kept in really good condition. The receptionist and workers were all amazing and helpful. We will definitely be returning.
