An insight into a deranged brain. Weird, but still not worth $5, you can see enough from the road. Definitely visit Smither Park just alongside, a better use of your time.

I was in Houston for an academic conference, and one of my colleagues asked if anyone wanted to check this out -- and I jumped at the chance. I love kooky, eccentric individuals. The creator of the Orange Show was just that. They weren't actually...More

I'm not sure how to describe this but it was very interesting. It's basically and art installation that you can climb all over. Make sure you read through the history of the guy who built it (there is a "musuem" with the info).
