This is a nice museum with a wide variety of art, including regional, contemporary, modern, and folk collections. (I'm sure there are art terms I'm not remembering, but they really did have a wide variety!) The main building is very pretty, with rooms stretching out...More

Great selection of paintings, sculpture, Japanese art and costumes. The building and layout is fabulous. Very airy and spacious. Don't miss the glass elevator. If one has the time, it definitely should be on the schedule.

I really enjoy this art museum. It is large and has a great flow to it with an excellent collection of Greek and Roman art. Also, easy/ free parking.

Housed in the historic Lone Star Brewery complex, one of the city's best museums. The Latin American collection is outstanding but so is the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian collection. Kids loved it.
