amazing amount of cans

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

I've taken several out of town guests to visit. It is popular with my friends who want to see a unique slice of life.

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.

This was very cool to see but it certainly does not take up very long time to see it. It was closed for tours when we visited.

The Beer Can House is definitely a unique attraction in Houston, but unless you pay to go on the tour, it's really not much more than a 5-10 minute stop to just see what it looks like up close and in person. Parking is challenging, so if you see a spot on the street that is somewhat nearby - grab... More

I'd seen this on TV plenty of times, as Houston is the home to many works of art. This house is completely covered in been cans and while they doesn't sound real amazing and maybe it's not, it just show something that you've never seen before, something different is always fun to see.

I like quirky architecture and folk art. This site combines both, a beer can house, wow. I won't tell the story here, it's already on line. Just go see it, these places are not franchises, they are real and unique.
