Police Museum

Houston is a city that offers a lot of free (and fun) attractions. This museum is located at the Police Academy on the spacious grounds of George Bush Intercontinental Airport and is a great place to spend an afternoon. Police uniforms from around the world are on display, along with a somewhat odd collection of various weapons seized from criminals. With the assistance of an officer, you can view the elaborate gun collection and see what riding in a police car is like. The police helicopter is always a big hit with people of all ages.

Art Car Museum

In a city like Houston where everyone spends most of the day driving, it's no wonder some innovative artists would think to turn cars into art. At the Art Car Museum, also known as the "Garage Mahal," you can see these crazy pieces on display. This unusual museum will delight visitors of all ages with cars transformed into the likes of a giant evil Easter Bunny or a gold Chevy covered in stuffed alligators called the "Swamp Mutha."

The Menil Collection

Named after Dominque de Menil, one of the greatest art collectors of the 20th Century, the Menil Collection is impressive. It houses an enormous private collection where the artwork is shown on a rotating basis because it is too numerous 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.

Houston Holocaust Museum

In his midnight millennium speech, Pope John Paul said the most defining elements of the 20th century were the rise and fall of two oppressive ideologies that victimized millions of people, Communism and Nazism. This museum is a tribute to the victims of the Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Through changing exhibits, films and lectures, it seeks to inform future generations of the racism of the holocaust and the horrifying results of hatred. In addition to exhibits, there is a library, theater and document archives.
