Rienzi Society

Rienzi Society for Patron Groups page

Rienzi Society members are invited to a formal seated dinner every year in the ballroom.

The Rienzi Society benefits the MFAH’s collections of European decorative arts displayed in the former home of Carroll Sterling and Harris Masterson III. Members of the Rienzi Society receive special invitations to lectures and are invited each year to participate in selecting pieces for the collection to be purchased with funds raised at the Rienzi Society Dinner. The evening allows members to preview the items available for acquisition, and to enjoy a spectacular formal dinner in the Rienzi ballroom.

Membership Dues (individual): $2,500.

(FMV for an individual membership is $100 and $200 for a couple.)

For more information, contact or 713.639.7523.

Parking in the Museum’s two garages is complimentary during Patron Group events! Members of Patron Groups also enjoy the discounted MFAH member rate when parking during regular Museum visits. Learn more about parking.
