The Menil Collection
Free hours: Wed - Sun, 11 am - 7 pm
Notes: Over on the 30-acre Menil Campus lies one of Houston’s most prized art collections, featuring glorious exhibitions from the Byzantine and Medieval worlds, tribal cultures, antiquity, and the 20th century. A trip here is always free, which is the foundation of Menil’s core mission, but donations are suggested. Also always free? The Live Oak-shaded park surrounding the gallery, and the four other sleek buildings perched on campus: the Cy Twombly Gallery, Dan Flavin Installation, Byzantine Fresco Chapel, and Menil Drawing Institute.
