A striking, all white building on the water, this art museum was voted one of the best in southern Texas. Although permanent exhibits feature art from the region, the museum is known for its rotating exhibits of fine art work in different mediums.

We stopped here to get out of the rain and were surprised that it was a highlight of our trip. There are some amazing Chihuly glass pieces and several interesting pieces including a Cindy Sherman original upstairs! I highly recommend it!

Check Groupon before you go though. They typically run one and it's a good deal. I also remember seeing there is a discounted/free night of the week or month as well. You can call and ask which day it is.
