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. More possibilities await at Rienzi, the MFAH house museum for European decorative arts, situated on four acres of wooded gardens. See the latest safety protocols here.
