This museum is immaculate and holds a nice variety of works for several periods. There are contemporary pieces and installations and some old masters as well. The little cafe is really good!

The Museum of Fine Arts is the crown jewel of H-Town's awesome museum district. They have an extensive collection of pieces from all over the world and many of the European masters. I've been many, many times through the years and never tire of returning.
