Its in the middle of a neighborhood, but it's quite a site. If you have some time, drive by, stop and take a look around. It's a pretty eccentric house, but the detail put into this creation is amazing.

These are my favorite kinds of attractions. Yes, the whole property is covered in beer cans and pop tops. Friendly staff and a great example of what a quirky imagination is capable of.

It's a famous Houston spot, just not sure why. I imagine if I did this to my house, nobody would be impressed. Maybe it's because he did it first. It is just a house where the siding has been covered up by flattening beer cans. All I could think of was, isn't this a code violation, and what must the... More

We stopped here but did not have time to take the actual tour. The house is in a nice neighborhood and was created over 20 years according to the sign. As advertised everything is covered in beer cans. Many of the beer cans colors have faded due to weather but you can still make many of them out. This gives... More

When googling places to see in Houston, this was on my list. This is located back in the middle of a neighborhood, but worth mapping in. This impressive house is covered in tin cans (we spotted more than 1 7up can :) Very fun to see, they offer tours daily (we didn't go inside.) Support the arts and see this... More

This is an icon in Houston, tucked in the middle of a normal neighborhood. It's amazing to see the exterior of an entire house decorated with beer cans. There is a paid tour but it's not necessary to appreciate the art. However, donations do help maintain the house so I always drop some dollars whenever I take my out of... More

Made this a quick stop on our way to lunch...Very cool to see sandwiched in- between the usual sticks and bricks houses. The story behind it is really interesting if you do some research and it doesn't take much time to find it in it's quiet little neighborhood. Snap a picture or two to entertain your friends and family along... More

Houston has a delightful variety of museum venues. This is clearly toward the campy end of that broad spectrum--somewhere near the Orange Show, and pretty distant from the Holocaust Museum, the Rothko Chapel or the Menil Collection. If you care about reviews, the Beer Can House might not be for you. I enjoyed it.
