World-class permanent collection by the artist of the same name - Menil. Other exhibits and items of interest are located within this popular museum, as well.
The Menil Collection—so named because the works once belonged to philanthropists John and Dominique de Menil—is perhaps the most famous museum in Houston.
Stop by the cafe for a quick bite! The food is delicious and reasonably priced.
Beautiful architecture, nicely manicured outdoor spaces, remarkable art collection.
Local favorite. Very diverse and eclectic private collection. If you can visit only one museum while visiting Houston, visit the Menil.
Wonderful walkable museum campus with several galleries and a nice lunch and dinner spot called Bistro Menil with an outdoor patio
“A national treasure for modern art lovers. Be sure to visit the Menil Collection nearby. ”
“1/4 mile to MFAH and 4 other incredible museums. Walk a leisure 6 blocks to the train to access all the museums or a $4 Uber ride. ”
“My favorite bar in Houston. There's tons of liquor to choose from and a cocktail novel lol to find what you like. My palette always approves. *Can get packed on Fri + Sat nights. ”
“Delight your senses with the aroma of freshly bakes pastries and great coffee!”
“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”
