The offer: beautiful building and exhibitions. I hadn't visited for a number of years. The last time was when a portion of Rockefeller's Asian Art collection was on display. That was marvelous. Currently there is an exhibition of contemporary Indian photography. As in any such...More

Very interesting museum and center for Asians in Houston. Most things are free to visiting or participate. Inexpensive to join and very interesting culturally

the design of the building is a dream for architects or lovers of architecture, the infinity pond is extraordinary and the sand garden and bamboo background is breathtaking

First, get someone to describe the building. The architect did an amazing job. The exhibition was interesting. It also is a great place to have a meeting or a reception.

Great place to take visitors and local friends too. It's always interesting especially when they have an exhibit or a tour guide. The building is both laid back and spectacular.

The Asia Society is a beautiful architectural gem in Houston stunningly designed by architect Yoshio Taniguchi. Seeing the building is as much of a reason to visit as the exhibitions. It is a very elegant design, and the setting is very tranquil and peaceful. A...More

Let me start by saying that this review is more about an event that I went to at the center, rather than the center itself. I recently visited the center for the first time, to attend their annual AsiaFest. I love these types of cultural...More
