The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

This museum offers a wide variety of collections that will keep you entertained for hours, not to mention the two buildings are connected by a giant trippy light tunnel that will make you have some major Space Mountain flashbacks. One of my favorite sections was the Europe and North American portions, just because I got to see some of my favorite artists. I was also impressed at some of the Egyptian pieces they had, I believe the oldest date I saw was around 2000 B.C. which is incredible! The only semi-bummer factor was that you aren't allowed to take photographs in the majority of the museum, so always make sure to ask before you shoot.
Still can't get over these stunning tree lined streets...
Wasn't really supposed to take this picture (there's no photography allowed in the photography exhibit - oddly enough) but the guard was cool and let me keep it.

Some tips for visiting:
-If you're a student and you have a valid ID (doesn't have to be in Texas) your ticket is only $7.50
-They also have senior, youth, and child discounts as well as FREE admission every Thursday if you can make it then.
-There are two free parking lots near the museum and there's always usually spaces available.
-There is a cafe in the Museum but I would suggest either eating somewhere local in the nearby area or going across the street to the food trucks in the parking lot.

Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Monet


I'd love to hear from you!
