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.

This small house, covered with beer cans, is the result of 20 years of work by the owner. Now a small museum, you can walk around the property and even go in the house. There is an informative video where you can learn about the artist and see a few exhibits about the construction. It is worth the small admission... More

It was a pretty cool looking house. We had a hard time finding a place to stop so that we could look at it. This house is on a very narrow road and there is not really a place to park and of course the traffic moves through there. It was nice to look at all the different homes in... More

On lookers lined up as we paid the reasonable entrance fee. This is a early 1900's structure which has been covered in old beer cans. the entire property is a artistic piece from the original walkway to the fencing which surrounds the structure. If your in the area and have 30 minutes to an hour to see, it is worth... More

We were spending the day in Houston seeing Houston sites with another couple that lives here. Not wanting to do "standard" Houston Things to Do we sought out off the beaten track fun things to do. Our first stop was the Beer Can House. It was fun- not only to see a beer Can sided house, but to walk through... More

I wouldn't drive very far out of my way to see this, but if you're in the area, it's worth a look just for the wth factor. Definitely recommend watching the short video which introduces the visitor to the guy (and his wife who is kind of a hoot) who built the beer can house.

Went here on a Sat. evening but it was closed. Very Cool and something different to see. I wouldn't see a point in coming back but I would recommend a visit. Nice Photo Op as I don't think there are many Beer Can Houses:D

I was on a 14day road trip with my sister and friend and we were going through Houston and found this place online. We decided to stop by, but it was closed and we were fine with that so we did a mini photo shoot. It's crazy if you look closely that every little detail is made from beer cans!... More
