Made this a quick stop on our way to lunch...Very cool to see sandwiched in- between the usual sticks and bricks houses. The story behind it is really interesting if you do some research and it doesn't take much time to find it in it's quiet little neighborhood. Snap a picture or two to entertain your friends and family along... More

Houston has a delightful variety of museum venues. This is clearly toward the campy end of that broad spectrum--somewhere near the Orange Show, and pretty distant from the Holocaust Museum, the Rothko Chapel or the Menil Collection. If you care about reviews, the Beer Can House might not be for you. I enjoyed it.

I lived in Houston for two years before visiting this attraction! It was well done, only cost a small amount to go inside the house and free to walk around the outside. The young men that were working in the office were helpful and informative, a great little stop when looking for interesting things to do in Houston

we looked for this place in a residential area, ok so its a house where the owners put a lot of cans on the walls fence and hanging from the roof, its not a bar where you can have a drink, just a glimpse from the outside.

This is not "a place" - this is just a local peculiarity that is fun to come to, watch and make some pics. A must-have "photo souvenir" of Houston.

Fun way to kill an hour in Houston. If you are nearby this is a great way to kill some time in Houston. The house is pretty much as it was in 1968. Doesn't take long to see, and is in area near good restaurants.

Just do it when you get a chance. It is one of the most unusual things a tourist needs to take in on their travels. It will put the energy back that gets drained when traveling. You only have to stay a few minutes. It is what it says it is. But, it is really fun for the entire family.... More

It's just fun to see! Doesn't take a lot of time. The guy that worked there was friendly and informative. My 7 yr old enjoyed it as well.

This house is entirely made of beer cans with wind charms made of beer can pieces. This just takes a couple of minutes. You can't go in but it's unusual and fun.
