Kids found this online and insisted on visiting. While this would not have made it to my list of must see sights, it's actually really cool. Someone worked really hard and that deserves some respect.

As wonderful as the house itself is, with thousands of flattened beer cans covering the entire outside of the house or serving as delightful wind chimes hanging from the eaves, the best reason to visit the Beer Can House is to hear the story behind the house. Some will marvel at the house itself, while others may be aghast that... More

Thai is not your everyday little bungalow home in Houston and is Quirky, cool, different, or a disaster depending on your own tastes. But it's something to see in the area stop on by.

The only open hours are Saturdays and Sundays, noon - 5:00. That's it. Two days, five hours each day. We arrived at 11:45 on Sunday, 08/09/15 with 5 kids and 3 adults. Finally left a little after 12:30. Got bored sitting on the sidewalk out in front of the locked gate, and it was pretty hot. We tried calling the... More

The Beer Can House is the product of one man's decision to put a special look on his house. I'm not sure if he personally drank all of the beer, but there are cans, can tops, pop-top rings, marbles, small statues that make this a one of a kind folk art treasure. It is on a small narrow street between... More

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

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.
