I was pleasantly surprised at how big this museum was an how diverse its holding were. While it doesn't necessarily have the biggest names in art, the art on display is really quite beautiful. It wasn't crowded when we went at all and was really an enjoyable experience overall.

Visit once and you will want to return. It is The exhibits change and All have been enjoyable. This isn’t a stuffy place but welcoming and open.

Just when you think you have seen everything you come to a museum like this and are reminded there is more. The collection here is large and varied. My wife and I spent our 2 hours just looking at the European art collection and we were really impressed. Each picture has a description and in many cases included information I have not known so even though you may be familiar with the Impressionists, for example, coming here you will likely read about something that is new to you. The bottom line for us is that the quality of the collection was impressive, for regular museum goers that were here for the first time-we were impressed, and after 2 hours we had not even attempted at least half of the museum. Well done Houston.

Don’t bother. Not even technically a museum as it contains no real art. A joke, really. Even for Houston, this is a low low bar

The permanent exhibits are great, despise the overwhelming security guards that ruined the experience by following us allover the place because we have kids with us and where less patrons to follow around.
