The beer can house was strange but it was pretty cool to see. It's unique, not something you see every day. We're glad that we stopped by.

Most subdivisions in Texas would never allow someone to place parts of beer cans and bottles on or around their house. The exception is the BEER CAN HOUSE located at 222 Malone in the Rice Military/Memorial section (NW of downtown Houston), This iconic property is the brainchild of John Milkovisch who spent years in the 1960 transforming his plain house...

Imagine all of the siding in your house being made out recycled beer cans! Definitely must stop by here and see. I think everyone will enjoy. It is something you will not forget. Easy to get to, plenty of free parking on the street. In addition to the siding, the whole house is extensively decorated with beer can art. It... More

Unique Home. I think the owner is nuts to build this place. Go see this for yourself and have a great laugh.Don't forget the camera.

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
