Fun way to kill an hour in Houston. If you are nearby this is a great way to kill some time in Houston. The house is pretty much as it was in 1968. Doesn't take long to see, and is in area near good restaurants.

Just do it when you get a chance. It is one of the most unusual things a tourist needs to take in on their travels. It will put the energy back that gets drained when traveling. You only have to stay a few minutes. It is what it says it is. But, it is really fun for the entire family.... More

It's just fun to see! Doesn't take a lot of time. The guy that worked there was friendly and informative. My 7 yr old enjoyed it as well.

This house is entirely made of beer cans with wind charms made of beer can pieces. This just takes a couple of minutes. You can't go in but it's unusual and fun.

We went to see the beer can house earlier this month. Definately not soemthing you stop and go tour, just stop in the street kind of thing. It was pretty interesting to see the house. Definately unique.

Only a couple of blocks from my son's house, this is a bit of an anticlimax & needs a spruce up. It's looking tired now & the neighbourhood is moving on.

I take all visitors by this house to see it on the outside. I've never been in it but don't have to go in to enjoy just gawking at all the work that went into it.
