My husband and I found this in a book on "things to do in Houston" and we actually went in to see the house and while I'd agree with another TA reviewer who said "fun to show out of town guests." I enjoyed looking around inside the home and yard and hearing the story/history. Not a MUST DO but a... More

Just took some friends here, including a 13-year-old boy, and they couldn't believe their eyes. Didn't go in, just looked around from outside the gate. It's an amazing testament to one man's determination- and vision - of what's possible using beer cans. Worth a look if you're in the area.

I can assure you that you've never seen anything like this place. The house is covered in beer cans and pull tabs. It's not too far from downtown. I didn't pay to take the inside tour, but just taking photos of the outside pleased my out of town guests.

My friend and I stumbled on the Beer Can house while waiting for the Bayou Bends to open and enjoyed wandering around it and learning about how it came about. It even smelled beery!

Interesting part of local history. Where else could you find a house covered in beer cans? Sounds nice when there's a breeze!

I would definitely say this is worth driving past if you happen to be nearby and have time to kill. It is somewhat of a Houston tradition to see this crazy little house. I would not make this a destination in any way, and I don't even know if exiting the car is worth it, but its neat to see... More

Definitely bring your camera! My daughter and grandson visited here. I wouldn't have thought to take a pre-teen here but he was intrigued by the methods used to decorate this house. It was fun to see all the different beer cans used. Very unique outing!

This is a drive by exhibit. Not sure why someone would do this but if you are visiting Houston and have time to go by the house you can have some funny pictures to show your friends. When my kids were teenagers they thought this place was the BOMB (boys)

This is a novelty, certainly, built over the course of twenty years, so maybe one person or household drank all these cans?? It's fun to see, at least from the outside.

It is an amazing piece of art to take a look at. The place doesn't seem to be a lot people though. Go during the day time to get a good glimpse.
