It is an exhibition forum for local, national, and international artists with an emphasis on art cars, other fine arts and artists that are rarely, if ever, acknowledged by other cultural institutions.

Parking wasn't so great, but it's free! Besides cars, they also have different art exhibits which although unexpected were quite intriguing. Also were informed that they change the exhibits out frequently so it's always a new experience!

This is a great little museum. It is a fun, free activity for all ages. I really enjoyed the Pat Johnson and Carter Ernst Collections as well as the Art Cars.

A fun and interesting stop when in Houston. As some have mentioned, it is somewhat limited with only 3 cars, but the rest of the art was neat. Ask questions and you will get answers. The staff was very happy to pass along the stories behind the cars. Check ahead of time as the hours are kinda different and on my first try to visit they were closed for renovation. You might want to call ahead just to be sure. Bring your camera and enjoy! And you might find something to do with the "supplies" that you have laying around the shop/garage! You are also about a mile or so from the Aquarium. Another good stop.

Good for the whole fam. You could be in and out in 10 minutes or spend a while visiting. Even has free parking! I put some money in the jar because it was worth it. See attached pic---these aren't regular cars.

I enjoy the art car movement and expected a larger museum. The museum has 3 cars and a variety of art. I would love to see more cars. If you do not about the art car movement go, it will be fun and educational. If you are into art cars, you will be disappointed.
