It’s an art-lovers paradise. Over 63,000 works of art ranging from drawings and sculptures, to painting and antiquities span the 300,000 square feet of exhibition space at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.
Visitors could easily spend days wandering the galleries and exhibit halls, studying and learning about art and culture from around the world; from treasured pieces of history right through modern art.
To facilitate the broad mandate of the museum, The MFAH has multiple buildings dedicated to exhibits, galleries, and education. Guests are invited to attend lectures and tours to learn more about the special features at the museum.
Now through May 27, 2013, Picasso Black and White, is currently on exhibit. It’s a fantastic display of works from the world-famous artist.
There are a few ways to save on admission for the MFAH (guests are still required to purchase tickets to the special event exhibits):
- Purchase tickets online and save $1 on adult tickets
- Thursday’s are complimentary general admission thanks to a corporate partnership with Shell; however, do note that there will be many families and school-aged children.
- Save up to 46% off general admission and visit four other Houston attractions by purchasing a Houston City Pass.
The MFAH is located in the museum district in downtown Houston at 1001 Bissonnet, Houston. It’s easily accessible by the light rail line or by car.
