Although they moved the huge and wonderful Giacometti into the MFA there are still great sculptures here. Works by Matisse, Marini, Maillot and more contemporary artists displayed in a harmonious setting.

To be in the center of such a major city it was an unexpected delight to see such serine to and good quality art works. I am personally so tired of welded together chunks of steel being called sculptures. This was great

sculputures were varied in style and subject. All were thoughtful. Worth a stroll and stop.b they provided tables and chairs for people wanting to lunch in the park. Various food trucks came during the day.

A great spot, perfect for photographers, or a couple looking for a quiet spot. Parking is free right next to the garden, it's really a can't miss in Houston!

MFAH has placed several tables and chairs in the sculpture garden. When the weather is nice, it is a wonderful place for a lunch. If you did not pack a lunch, you can buy your lunch from a food truck parked just outside of the garden or get your lunch to go from the Cafe Express in the Beck Building... More

Just across the street from the main MFA buildings, is the Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden. Do not miss this peaceful and beautiful spot. The sculpture is varied and world-class. Benches and trees, too.

Now, I love a sculpture garden, and the Cullen is a treat. It's open early so so can beat the heat and get there before the Houston Fine Art Museum (opposite) opens. It's also a good shady place to at lunch, as they have some food trucks next to it.

Tucked in behind trees and a wall across from fine arts museum, this is a nice little gem. Great place to grab a sandwich and sit among the statues, enjoying the peace and quiet. And the sculptures are great too!

Its worth a walk through and a nice place to grab some lunch. Spent 15 mins walking threw the park, snapped a few photos and grabbed some lunch at The Waffle bus which was a first for me. My favorite Sculpture in Adam, made of bronze from 1889.
