Every large city has at least one museum that offers something out of the ordinary. Sometimes, these more unusual museums are forgettable and it’s often because they present something that is far to niche oriented to have any widespread appeal. But one unusual museum that...More
Funeral museum you say? Yes! Husband just retired a couple of weeks ago. We decided to explore our backyard for the first year. So many things that we never explored near us! One was the funeral museum. Was our first stop!! We were told it...More
We were looking for things to do in Houston while visiting family. We came across the museum via TripAdvisor. We took a shot and were completely delighted by our visit! It was easy to find, very reasonably priced and very clean. The exhibits were interesting...More

So you know, it's not a big building nor does it "stand out" (unless you were looking for it, you might not notice it). It's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, but a few blocks from the main drag. It's best described as a "mom and pop" type of museum--no frills place. That being said, it's certainly an interesting museum, just don't expect it to be more than a 1-2 hour visit.
Hi! I believe it's $10 for adults...I'm a senior and I think I paid $9.00. And yes, they do accept credit cards! As far as food, I didn't see a café or anything onsite, but a number of restaurants are nearby. It's Houston... More
