If you're in for a little contemporary art window-shopping, than it is a great place. I have been to Houston only once, and this museum was the best thing I saw. The building is made of something silvery colored metal and it can be easily found. Interesting fact that they do not have a permanent collection and only have temporary exhibitions of contemporary artists, so whenever you go it's always a surprise. Best thing about it is that it's free for everyone, any time!

Address:
At the corner of Montrose Blvd. and Bissonnet St.

Price:
Free!!!
