Our Review:  Houston Center for Photography is located next to the Menil Collection.  The storefront is on West Alabama and has a free parking lot in front.  The small museum is free to the public but they gladly accept donations.

I took the kids on a Sunday afternoon.  There were a few people at the museum, but not a crowd that was worried about the parade of kids that I take everywhere I go.    

The museum is small and cool and a nice relief when exploring the Menil’s outdoor campus.  There are 3 white rooms, each filled with photography.  Right now they have animals.  Last time they had funny summertime family pictures.

My kids enjoyed looking at the pictures and putting a couple dollars in the donation box.  The visit only took about 15 minutes, but for free, we’ll visit over and over.  Go check it out!
