Houston's Menil Collection has the Most Instagrammable Spot in Town
The most prominent establishment in Houston’s Museum district, the Menil Collection contains everything from African art and antiquities, to Byzantine work and surrealism, which the museum is most known for. Don’t miss Dan Flavin’s light installation—otherwise known as the most Instagrammable spot in town.
One of the USA’s largest private art collections is housed in Houston and free for the public to view from Wednesdays through Sundays. It’s an amazing collection that covers painting, rare books, prints, sculptures, and photographs from some of the most important artists of the 20th century, including Magritte, Man Ray, Matisse, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol. Even the museum itself is a work of art, designed by Renzo Piano, who created the sensational Centre Pompidou in Paris.
