It was interesting to see, but took all of one minute to take most of it in. Of course, it was randomly closed on the day we decided to stop by, so maybe I would've gotten more out of it if I could've toured the whole place. Might want to call before you go to make sure it's open if... More

It was our first time to Houston and we wanted to go places off the beaten path and we are glad we did. There is a short film inside describing the family who lived in the house and the man who worked on placed every single beer can and every marble and whatever knick knack he had handy to cover...

Although the visiting hours were posted on line, the house was closed when we got there. That was disappointing, but we still saw enough outside -- in 90+ weather -- to make the visit worthwhile. The sound of the moving parts when the wind blows is delightful, like the beer tab curtain on the side of the house. Many of... More

We took our children to visit the Beer Can house in Houston. It's in a regular neighborhood so make sure you don't pass by! The house is amazing and there is a short film inside talking about the man who built it. The years of work that must have gone into this place is amazing. Plus, it's an excellent opportunity...

It is definitely off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood but worth seeing. We went on a Sunday evening when there was no traffic and had plenty of time to walk around. The house was not open when we went there but there was lots to see from the exterior. You won't see anything like this anywhere else in... More

I agree that one should be in the area to make this worthwhile, but it is iconic and interesting. We all have hobbies... just imagine this one being yours! We were pretty much alone there on a weekday afternoon and after a few moments, I was ready to move on.... and then a gentle wind kicked up. I cannot even... More

This place is located in the neighborhood away from major avenues so visit only if you are closeby , other than that go somewhere else, it takes 2 minutes to take some pictures and see around and that's it, I would not rate this as 5 stars sorry, just not worth the time and effort.

I can't imagine the neighbors are thrilled to be located near this. It's OK at best, but I wouldn't make too much of a special effort to visit. If you're in the area anyway, go check it out, but you won't miss much unless you're obsessed with objects covered in beer cans. Spent at least two minutes, didn't even take... More

I went to the beer can house during my weekend trip to houston in February. I had seen it on trip advisor and decided I had to go see what it was. My three boys' are 21 years old and I wanted to send them a picture of something they could relate to on my mini vacation! You have to... More

How much is the fee for the entrance? I have not yet been to this place. I am planning to go this Sunday, but I have no clue if theres a fee to pay to be able to explore the house. May someone please respond to my question.
