If you enjoy sightseeing fun/quirky/random places, definitely stop at The Beer Can House! Walk around the outside of the house to see thousands of old beer cans, bottles and labels. They are everywhere! They do not just adorn the house. You'll see beer cans along the driveway walls, in the garden, made into sculptures...everywhere! It's free to walk around the... More

This is a GREAT place! It's basically a little bungalow house that the former owner covered with beer cans. He did it--because he could. There isn't a lot to see inside the house--however, if you do go, make sure and watch the short video. It gives you insight into the former owner and his wife. He was a quirky guy,... More

Just something fun and neat to see. Something you won't see everyday. A must stop by if you're in the area! I like this that are different!

This small bungalow is adorned with beer cans, pull tabs, marbles and empty lemon juice containers - the owner toiled to cover every available surface. It is amazing to see and marvel at the time and energy brought to fulfilling this vision. The interior of the home is unscathed, but is a wonderful time capsule.

It's simply a house covered in crushed cans. Drove by, said wow look at that, took some pics & were on our way. It was not open for the tour, so I can't speak for that, but can't imagine it being worth the price of admission. It is worth a drive by to see in person if you're in the... More

The Beer can house is such an interesting site to see when in Houston. It is only open on the weekends but I like to take all out of town guest here. The sound the chimes make is really nice.

Very artistic.... The architect was a clever, determined soul. The noise of the lids clanging would keep me up at night, but I don't have to live there; I was just a visitor.

It wasn't open for tours the day we stopped to see the Beer Can House. It was interesting to see all the work the man has put into it. Now I can say that we've been there.

I enjoyed going to the Beer Can House. I was unaware that you could tour it, until we got there. And since it wasn't operating that day, we didn't tour it. It was just interesting to see the house. I mean why did someone build a house completely out of beer cans? It's just so random.
