This was a very pleasant surprise. We intended to spend an hour or two with this museum snd instead spent most of the day including having lunch at the Menil Bistro. The Collection is housed in several buildings each thematic in content. The exhibits are very well lit and grandly spaced so you are not assaulted by walls of art. The buildings were design to house the collection so there was an added architectural element to the exhibits. Don’t miss the Rothko Chapel. We give it four and one half clams on the coveted Five Quahog Rating Scale
Most Houstonians who are in the mood for a museum experience will make their way to the Houston Museum District. There are, of course, lots of great museums in this district but there is another museum perfect for lovers of art that is located elsewhere. That would be the Menil collection, close to the University of St. Thomas. The bulk of the attractions of the Menil Collection are found in the main building, a single- story art museum that can be walked through in about one to two hours. You will find art from well- known folks such as Andy Warhol but the majority of the art will be from artists you have likely never heard of before. Besides the main building, there are a few smaller buildings across the street, housing more art. This is a quiet art museum and one cool thing about it is that the focus is on the art and not on learning about the art. What I mean is that, with each display, there is limited information- namely, the artist, year it was produced, etc. With other museums, there is often additional information about each work of art and you feel compelled to stop and read. The Menil Collection is different. It limits the information so that you can spend more time looking at the artwork. There is no charge to visit the Menil Collection, and this is certainly one of its appeals. However, you need to be careful where you park. There are several places along the street that look like they are available for parking, but they are not and the area police patrol will be quick to hit you with a fine. There is a bistro and a bookstore, too, for food and books to further your education. The Menil Collection is different from other art museums. It’s different in a good way and while it doesn’t house a ton of fine art, the abstract, three- dimensional, and contemporary art you will find here are certainly deserving of a look and you really can’t argue with free admission. I recommend a visit if you find yourself in the vicinity.
I was visiting the interactive exhibition that I couldn’t interact with. What the point of such an exhibition? But the other pieces was just beautiful. Unfortunately you can’t make a photo or video of the most of expo. The ancient pieces are gorgeous. You definitely should visit this place
Decent place. Clean, in order, and quiet. They let you take pics is designated areas. You can get great looking shots many angles in here. I'd most likely visit again one day.
Great place for locals and out-of-town guests to experience fine art in a calm and beautiful setting. They recommend reservations, but entrance is always free. Don't miss the various buildings, including the Rothko Chapel. The Menil Collection is truly a unique gem.
