If you’re being completely honest, you don’t get a lot of art and culture in your life. You’re busy, after all. You have to go to work, pay the bills, take the kids to practice, and still manage to eat dinner as a family. With so much to do, it can be hard to slow down and appreciate art. Change that this week by taking a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. This is easily one of the best art museums in the country, and it’s right in your backyard. Take that as a sign that it’s time to get a little art in your life.
Don’t head to the museum without a plan, though. Here are some tips to get the most out of your visit.
Come Early for the Best Parking
There’s quite a bit of construction going on at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston right now. New buildings are being added, and that has made parking a little more difficult than normal. Get there early so you can find a parking spot easily. Even if you do have to spend some time parking, it’s still worth the trip, so don’t get discouraged.
Take a Guided Tour
If you’re on a tight schedule, a guided tour is a must. Your tour guide will show you the highlights so you can cram a ton of stuff into a short period of time. The museum posts its tour schedule, so keep an eye out for a tour that interests you. Then, head to the museum at the scheduled time so you can see the best that a specific building or collection has to offer.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask
If there isn’t a guided tour when you visit, you can still explore the museum on your own. The museum is full of staff members, and each person is knowledgeable about the collections. Don’t be shy about asking questions. The staff is always happy to help.
Don’t Expect to Go Just Once
Unless you have a ton of time on your hands, this isn’t a one-time trip. You will likely come back again and again. Schedule some of those trips for Thursdays. That’s the free admission day, so you can browse the collections without spending any money.
You will see one impressive work of art after the next at the museum. You can also see works of art at Mike Calvert Toyota in Houston, Texas. Our works of art aren’t displayed in museums. Instead, they are showcased on the roads that travel through Houston and beyond. Our vehicles have gorgeous lines and curves and perform in all situations. Stop by and take them out for a spin today.
