From the Director
Welcome to the Menil Collection.
On our website, you can access a world of information about the museum, its history, collection, exhibitions, and programs. Though we have included many details here, no computer-screen page can convey the experience of visiting in person.
Located in Houston’s Museum District, the Menil campus is anchored by Renzo Piano’s first American building. This landmark structure houses one of the world’s great (and growing) art collections. Here we display ever-changing exhibitions that range from antiquities to modern and contemporary art. Throughout the year we also present a full calendar of public programs and events.
The Menil is a cultural oasis unlike anything else in America. Here an internationally renowned art destination resides in a quiet neighborhood enclave of bungalows and parks.
By hinting at the richness of the experience awaiting you here in Houston, I hope that our website will inspire an outing in the near future.
And we hope that you visit again and again.
