Take in Summer at the MFAH

Planning Your Visits

Choose your MFAH destinations and plan your visits!

At the expanded main campus, you’ll find three gallery buildings, three colorful artist-designed tunnels, and new outdoor art installations. Unwind in the sculpture garden or on the plaza, and see what’s on view in the Glassell School. Additional adventures await at the two MFAH house museums. Bayou Bend, showcasing American decorative arts, is situated on 14 acres of gardens and woodlands. Rienzi, featuring European decorative arts, sits on more than four acres of wooded gardens.
