So unusal it's a must see when I take folks around town

It's a small street so be aware there is very little space to park and really look around but they really put a lot of time and...drinking into this project and it's very unique.

The Beer Can House is unique to Houston, and is cool to see in person, but honestly, it's about a 10 minute visit unless you pay $5 to take the tour, which we just didn't think was worth it. Visit the website before you go to read the back story, and be ready to search for a parking spot -... More

I have been driving by here for years to show friends and out of town visitors, but you had to just look from the street. Now, you can buy a ticket and see the backyard and tour the inside of the house. The kitchen is pretty much intact the way it was left, the rest of the house is pretty... More

Are you kidding me? Ok, some nut decided to use a lot of beer cans for the exterior cladding of a house. Do not, repeat do not go one minute out of your way to see this.

Great guys who are friendly and knowledgeable preserving an interesting.....well no better way to describe it than as an art installation. If you go when it's closed you'll miss the history and much of the work that went in to it.

Dropped by on the way out of town, glad we didn't make a special visit but worth a quick look just for interest and a photo. Looks quite cool, stuck in the middle of a lot more normal stuff. Wouldn't plan to spend any time there, but worth stopping by for the quirky holiday photo.

Just crazy...in a good way. This guy covered his entire house in beer cans, as well as items around the front and back yard. There's a short movie about the house with interviews of him and his wife, as well as pictures, and items from the home inside. Interesting piece of Americana for a few bucks.

We stopped off here during our morning tour of the city. Can't say I was enthralled, although I guess it is not the average tourist attraction. I'm sure Houston has better to offer than this?

It's out of the way, you'll think you're lost, but it's right in the middle of a residential section. Very cool.l
