It's Official: Houston is Weirder than Austin

Did you know that Houston has a National Museum of Funeral History?!

It's located near Bush Airport...and focuses on death traditions. It's said to be stark "but not as morbid as one might expect"!??? Why don't they just go for it and make it rock-goth?! Right? The collection includes historic caskets and displays of famous funerals from Elvis to Gandhi, says AAA magazine., 281-876-3063

Well, that's one museum I have no desire to get my art into! LOL!

Then, while you're there, check out the other museums:

Art Car Museum,, 713-861-5526

Museum of Natural Science (love the butterfly rain forest),, 713-639-4629

Center for Contemporary Craft (rotating installations staged by artists-in-residence whose studios are open to the public);, 713-529-4848

The Menil Collection (on 23 acres...they collected a lot!),, 713-525-9400

Go artsy, Houston!
