In Houston:

Museum District -

The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. They are having a ton of exhibits.

MFAH


The Menil Collection. They have the only two intact Byzantine frescos in the Western hemisphere. They also have a few really nice Northwest Coast pieces.

The Menil


Center for Contemporary Craft.

Craft Center


The Orange Show. Which is -- uh -- just weird. But if you're there, go look.

The Orange Show


While you're in that neck of the woods have lunch at Niko Niko's. It was a grad student favorite in my day. But last time I ate there, they had gone upscale. Go off hours or you won't be able to park.


Niko Nikos

Drive through the Rice University campus on your way back to the interstate. If you stop behind the Space Physics Building and look up at the third floor. You can see where buckyballs were discovered.



There is of course the Space Center.
