Review for The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, USA
Our family has been going to the Menil for many years. The museum is bright and welcoming, and not at all overwhelming. It is a great place to spend an hour…..or an afternoon…..visiting with the various paintings and objects. Our children, and of course, we, relate to the various objects. Our youngest wrote an essay about one of the paintings as part of one of his college applications (he was admitted to that school). The quality and depth of the collection is excellent, including an absolutely first rate Surrealist collection.
Two years ago, we decided to increase our interactions, and support the Menil by becoming members. That has been a very pleasant surprise to be warmly welcomed into a community of people who are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about art. The noon lectures and periodic special events add additional dimensions to our experiences with the Menil. And, the reciprocal benefits are very good.
We are very appreciative that a wonderful institution like the Menil is here in Houston.
