Bayou Bend is the MFAH house museum for American decorative arts and paintings. Displayed in the former home of Houston civic leader and philanthropist Ima Hogg (1882–1975), the collection is one of the finest showcases of American furnishings, silver, ceramics, and paintings in the world. The house is situated on 14 acres of organically maintained gardens in Houston’s historic River Oaks neighborhood.

Open year-round, Bayou Bend welcomes thousands of visitors annually for tours and special programs. Featuring the Lora Jean Kilroy Visitor and Education Center, which includes the Kitty King Powell Library and Study Center, as well as state-of-the-art education and rental spaces, Bayou Bend has established its place in the continually growing cultural arts scene of Houston.
