The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, made up of several buildings in the Museum District, and elsewhere in Houston, is one of the largest art museums in America.
Established in 1900, the MFAH is the largest cultural institution in the southwest.
It took me several hours to explore just the 2 connected buildings in the Museum District and if I had actually read all the informational displays explaining this or that item I might still be there today. :-D
General admission is free on Thursday and you won't regret spending the money to get in. I didn't.
There were several exhibitions to see and enjoy, spanning literature, photography, painting, sculpture and more and deciding what to photograph for sharing would have been difficult if I hadn't decided to focus on subjects related to my own personal interests and creative pursuits.
I focused my cell phone camera on literature, writing, photography, bicycles and felines...especially felines.
The exhibitions spanned the centuries, from several hundred years before Christ to the early 20th century, and every continent.
The intent of this post and one on my cat blog is to share 19 photos that give a representative example of all that I saw and was amazed at on my exploring the museum.
There were 4 Shakespeare volumes on display, from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
This one was something called "Bell's ed."
"Boydell's" from 1804.
A Mid-19th century volume.
The 2nd Folio, from 1632.
