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

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.

The house was small and on a random residential street, you can't miss it though. The people there told us to take time and notice the details which was a good tip there were lil details everywhere! Kind of made you laugh when the guy who created it had no rhyme or reason about why he did it. Good little... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when stopping by this place but I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, once you get a closer look at the house you realize that this guy spent a ton of time on his piece of art. There are details to observe throughout the property and worth the time checking them out. The tour... More

Too fun! We made a surprise stop to see the Beer Can House. Surprise to our friends who were along for a day shopping trip to Houston. We all enjoyed the stop, took pictures, had some good laughs, but were sorry we weren't there during the times the tours were available. Maybe next time!

Great little place! Inexpensive admission. Street parking can be a little tight at times. Self Guided Tour is well done and includes a video of the creator and his family. Something to see for sure!

not sure I could live next door to it, as the can tops were swinging and clattering around in the wind when I visited. It was not 'open' as such but not sure that really made a difference as you get the idea pretty quickly from a few feet away. Believe I saw this on an English tv program Amazing... More
