An avid choice support for many years has been The Menil Collection in the city of Houston’s Museum district. The Menil collection opened its doors to the public 25 years ago and since then it has had mounting exhibitions, publishing, has launched the Artists Documentation Program, and created an archives facility.
In the rapidly developing urban fabric of Houston’s Museum District, the Menil’s 30-acre campus of bungalows and green space has preserved the historical significance and original residential character of the neighborhood
In the decade since its creation, the Menil Archives, housed within the museum building, has become an indispensable source for information about the de Menil family and the museum’s history and also houses a number of important related collections
Admission to the museum and all of its programs remains free of charge ; and according to management “will always be so”. Josef Helfenstein has been director of the museum since 2004.
