A fun stop to see a neat house stuck in time. Worth a quick stop. Easy to find. The staff is friendly. $5 to tour the inside and see memorabilia. Loved seeing the before & after pictures inside.

Looks very neat online but its not much to see. The yard needs some attention, and the inside is pretty bare. Don't waste your money on a tour. Just take a look at the outside and be on your way.

It's interesting, but it's basically just a house made of beer cans. Just drove up and looked at it. Nothing else.

Passed by and saw it from the street. Very interesting to look at. We did not get down to get any pictures. I'm not sure if you are supposed to get down. Very interesting to look at. Kids thought it was cool.

If you are in the neighborhood it will be nice to stop by the house and to check it out. If you are interested in the modern and alternate arts, you might also want to come inside ($5) for a quick visit. But I wouldn’t...More

So much fun!! We learned so much about beer cans. The story of the house is so sweet! I don’t want to wreck the story so go and see for yourself! I would recommend this tour and the tour guides were so nice! Impressed!

So this is the opposite of lifestyles of the rich and famous, but it’s a great for those looking for something unique. The house on the exterior is covered with aluminum beer cans. Hey a take on aluminum siding. If you just stay on the...More

This is for imaginative, not yet jaded travelers. There doesn't need to be a reason for bizarre. Just immerse yourself in one of Houston's super funky spaces.

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
