When you plan your visits, take advantage of the ever-changing calendar of events
brimming with activities for all ages throughout the Museum, including the Glassell School of Art
and our two house museums: Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens
We offer a number of ways to enjoy the Museum for free
. For example, MFAH members
receive free general admission every day, and Family-level memberships include the children in the household. Children 12 and younger are always admitted free, and on weekends all children receive free general admission when they show their card from any Texas public library. General admission is free for everyone on Thursdays, courtesy of Shell Oil Company.
For me, the Museum is a place of wonder and enlightenment, as I hope it is for you. Please visit often, and say hello when you see me in the galleries.
