This is a lovely little Houston gem. I discovered it several years ago when I decided to take my son on an "art crawl" to see all the wacky places in Houston. He was nine at the time and he loved it! I still love it ... great gift ship, a really cool place to see "outside the box" kind... More

I have loved the Beer Can House for decades, even before it was purchased by the Orange Show. I visited after the builder had died but his wife was still living there. She was so sweet and let us in to take photos of the outside property.

worth seeing how much time it must have taken to create this place, lots of labor must have gone into it, not the 8th wonder of the world but worth the time to see

Nothing really interesting as we glanced from the outside. A curiosity. Just not our kind of ibtersting things.

Cleaver, bizarre house! Everyone should at least see this. Can only see outside of house and no literature to tell you anything about it. Just something to see. A neat little side trip while exploring Houston sites.

A novelty but that's about it. Someone with nothing to do built it. Shouln't have wasted the time to see it but I had nothing to do. Don't waste the time trying to park on the street and paying money to go inside. Drive by or walk by and you can see all that there is to see.
