Great Space and Free!

This space is always enjoyable. Nice and interesting exhibits. I love the trees around the museum as well.

Houston Treature

The Menils left such a wonderful legacy to the people of Houston. Their namesake museum is spacious, interesting, and free. It is surrounded by the chapels, lots of greenery & trees. I wish there was a beautiful small cafe serving drinks, coffee, light snacks on/near the grounds in walking distance. I would like to see more music, such as chamber orchestras performing on the lawn or in the foyer, maybe a little more showcasing of local artists in one of the many small houses/offices surrounding the museum.

Incredible works by Maggrite

It's amazing how many people I know who have lived in Houston for several years and have never visited this great museum. There are some great works by surrealist painter Renee Maggrite, among pieces by Warhol (yes, even have the Campbell's Soup can), and Leger. Great place to visit on a sunny Houston weekend. And don't forget to bring food to take a picnic on the park across the museum. Makes for a memorable date!

The Menil Is Nice

The only downside to this multi-genre museum is that the exhibits rarely change so you cant visit it that often unless your going to see one of your fave pieces.

world class

How fortunate for we Houstonians to have an art collection such as this housed in such a tranquil setting. We love the Menil.....there is always an intriguing exhibit.

Place to relax

I reviewed its architecture in the Museum district category, so here let me say that unlike most museums this one is not at all crowded its a quiet restful place to spend some time with art and relax. Best of all its Free.
