This was so creative and innovative. I loved it!

It's out of the way, you'll think you're lost, but it's right in the middle of a residential section. Very cool.l

We stopped off here during our morning tour of the city. Can't say I was enthralled, although I guess it is not the average tourist attraction. I'm sure Houston has better to offer than this?

We came here on a rainy day. It's not a nice fancy museum, if that's what you're looking for. This place is cool though! It's interesting to walk around, and just look at everything. It's definitely a cool experience!

We were in Houston for vacation and had a little bit of time to kill, so our server at lunch suggested we come by there Beer Can House. I had already read about it on TripAdvisor, but it was close to where we were going, so we stopped by. It was off-hours, so we didn't get to go in, but... More

I probably wouldn't go out of my way to check out this house.... However, its not far from The Water Wall and as the title states... it's pretty cool so go check it out yourself! Btw, there's a $5 charge to actually go in past the front gate!

The place is interesting but I wouldn't call it an attraction... our little one found it amusing but I would happily not have to pay for the admission...

why would any one pay admission for this. Drive by. stop and look , move on. Interesting but not worth the energy to find this place and a parking spot to see what's inside. and admission????

The Beer Can House has probably been here for 50 or more years. It's quirky, eccentric and fun. Definitely worth a visit, whether you're passing through town or live here.

Looking to kill some time while in Houston? This is a great quirky attraction. I don't think the place is really built with beer cans but it is certainly decorated with them. Stop by, snap a few photos, and be on your way. A true testiment to Texas' zoning laws (or lack there of).

not to be missed attraction just off memorial drive-a jaw dropping collection of eclectic items recycled into a fun house in the literal sense of the word. take a camera and have fun--open at times
