We went to see the beer can house earlier this month. Definately not soemthing you stop and go tour, just stop in the street kind of thing. It was pretty interesting to see the house. Definately unique.

Only a couple of blocks from my son's house, this is a bit of an anticlimax & needs a spruce up. It's looking tired now & the neighbourhood is moving on.

I take all visitors by this house to see it on the outside. I've never been in it but don't have to go in to enjoy just gawking at all the work that went into it.

This is a lovely little Houston gem. I discovered it several years ago when I decided to take my son on an "art crawl" to see all the wacky places in Houston. He was nine at the time and he loved it! I still love it ... great gift ship, a really cool place to see "outside the box" kind... More

Go see the Beer Can House, one of the wonders of the Houston landscape! Look at the creativity paying homage to the lowly beer can.... Live by the golden rule and see the Beer Can House.
