The Menil Collection
Named after Dominque Menil, one of the greatest art collectors of the 20th Century, the Menil Collection houses an enormous private collection that has to be rotated because it is too large to show at once. Most of the collection is of modern works with an emphasis on surrealism, but African art and works from the Byzantine period are also displayed.
This museum is truly amazing. It really takes your breath away. Unlike other museums, the menil collection is very quiet and peaceful. Great architecture, everything is carefully planed and placed. Most importantly, it houses some of the most famous pieces of art in the world.
It's so simple it's scary. But if you really like art, you'll appreciate what the Menil's done for all of us. Divided in four sections, plus the current exibition (which I'd check their schedule) makes it a very nice experience. It's aprt of the museum distict, located in the heart of Hpuston, surrended by a park (if I remember correctly) and a large green area which makes it more pleasurable to visit. My favorite was the collection of twentieth-century, which includes, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dal�, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Matta, Joan Mir�, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, and Yves Tanguy. As you can see, you'll be amazed with this museum, as I was.
I love the museum and went there for a project. It was easy to find which is right outside the inner city. I love many of the painting including one section that has ancient artifacts. The only problems I did have was the security constantly following like I was gonna steal something. The worse part was that the painting are in DIM light so it's hard to see what in't covered by the light such as the attributes to the paintings.
The building is quite beautiful, discreet and unassuming (almost humble). It is a perfect setting for seeing art. The room of objects owned by some of the Surrealist artists aids understanding about that period and their inspiration. Choice cycladic sculpture objects and Roman funerary portraits and two moving temporary exhibitions.
