So unusal it's a must see when I take folks around town

It's a small street so be aware there is very little space to park and really look around but they really put a lot of time and...drinking into this project and it's very unique.

Dropped by on the way out of town, glad we didn't make a special visit but worth a quick look just for interest and a photo. Looks quite cool, stuck in the middle of a lot more normal stuff. Wouldn't plan to spend any time there, but worth stopping by for the quirky holiday photo.

I have never visited the home. But if a city has to tout this as a tourist attraction then you have to worry.

Just crazy...in a good way. This guy covered his entire house in beer cans, as well as items around the front and back yard. There's a short movie about the house with interviews of him and his wife, as well as pictures, and items from the home inside. Interesting piece of Americana for a few bucks.

We stopped off here during our morning tour of the city. Can't say I was enthralled, although I guess it is not the average tourist attraction. I'm sure Houston has better to offer than this?

It's out of the way, you'll think you're lost, but it's right in the middle of a residential section. Very cool.l

We came here on a rainy day. It's not a nice fancy museum, if that's what you're looking for. This place is cool though! It's interesting to walk around, and just look at everything. It's definitely a cool experience!

We were in Houston for vacation and had a little bit of time to kill, so our server at lunch suggested we come by there Beer Can House. I had already read about it on TripAdvisor, but it was close to where we were going, so we stopped by. It was off-hours, so we didn't get to go in, but... More

I probably wouldn't go out of my way to check out this house.... However, its not far from The Water Wall and as the title states... it's pretty cool so go check it out yourself! Btw, there's a $5 charge to actually go in past the front gate!

The place is interesting but I wouldn't call it an attraction... our little one found it amusing but I would happily not have to pay for the admission...
