Don't Miss It!!!

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.

A wonderful collection of sculptures in a lovely , green tree filled setting. The whole space was beautifully designed so the great variety of trees provide an architectural backdrop. The sculptures evoked a wide variety of emotions from smiles, laughter, sadness, admiration, pleasure, intrigue. We were impressed to see a Rodin, Miro, Matisse as well as contemporary American and European... More

We apparently got too close to a sculpture and an over-active security guard jumped out of his seat and waved his hands and said “HEY”. Ok message received we were too close; however he continued to follow us the rest of our visit. Every time we would turn around he would be there staring at us. It felt like we... More
