The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston


With a collection that exceeds 40,000 works and spans more than 6,000 years, the Houston Fine Arts Museum is sure to impress any art lover. Aside from the works housed within the museum's buildings, the museum maintains the Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, a collection of decorative art and furniture. The museum is also home to the Glassell School of Art and the Cullen Sculpture Garden.

Fun Fact: The Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens is located five miles away from the rest of the museum campus. It was donated to the museum in 1957.
