No food here worth really eating, but one of our better Museums in South Texas!

This museum has a nice collection and a reasonable fee. I have always visited at end of day or on the way to somewhere else so don't know if there is a restaurant. The city has restored an old warehouse to make the museum and it is a successful renovation. The problem is that the rest of the neighborhood is just warehouses and there isn't a restaurant scene or local shopping area that you would want to visit nearby. It's visit the museum and leave with a free parking lot across the street when I went. Renovating the area will give the museum the traffic it deserves. It has never been crowded when I visited it. I felt the museum is underutilized. Safe enough to visit. But no reason to tarry.
Nice museum shop for gifts and purchases with some reasonably priced articles.

Not only is this museum the repository for a broad spectrum of exquisite art but the building itself is art. This one time brewery has been tranformed into a superior showplace with wonderful attention to details. As the facility has needed expansion, additions were flawlessly blended with no loss of character. Very impressive from an architectual stance.
