  The Menil Collection, Houston
by XenoHumph
 
 

Great museum, not too big, not too small. Paintings of contemporary artists and surrealists, "primitive" art from all over the world. Very pleasant architecture, great lighting inside.
Other buildings that belong to the Menil collection and are within walking distance: the Rothko chapel (spooky), the Byzantine Fresco chapel (elegant), the Twonbly gallery (is this guy an artist???), and Richmond Hall (interesting).
Everything is free!

Address: 1515 Sul Ross, Houston, TX 77006
Directions: North of the museum district, North side of freeway 59, on Mandell street. Free parking on West Alabama.
