Sarofim Campus encompasses 14 acres including seven of the facilities, with two additional facilities, Bayou Bend and Rienzi (house museums) at off site locations.

I took my teenagers for some culture and light hearted fun. Great since it's small and the pieces are always a great way to get conversation and fun, interesting statements. Perfect size to keep their interest, about an hour or so. Parking in the streets around the museum want hard to find. I told my boys it was a great first date option!

Houston's Contemporary Arts Museum is soothing to my soul and raises my blood pressure at the same time. You never know what you'll get in this box of cracker jacks and I love it.

the pieces were interesting to look at. Because they changed the exhibits every couple of months or so, it is always worth visiting and it's free so extra points .

It's always the gift shop. The shows are often require more than one visit. CAM shows bring art that demands thought...or you can buy fun stuff in the gift shop.
