Cullen Sculpture Garden – Visiting Houston’s Parks, One Week at a Time
Address: Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Montrose Boulevard at Bissonnet Street, Houston, Texas 77006
Appropriate Age: Any Age!
The Cullen Sculpture Garden is across the street from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, on the corner of Bissonnet and Montrose. The garden is free to the public and open daily from 9:00am-10:00pm.
If you go on a Thursday, the museum is open all day for free and you will have access to the park, the museum, any events that are going on and the bathrooms.
This park can be enjoyed by all ages. There is no playground equipment, but a lot of green space and sculptures, right in the middle of the city. The garden is fenced off and you may forget you are right on Montrose Boulevard.
There is nothing to climb on, but it is a great spot for a picnic.
The one comment I will make is that the security guard was very nice and also very sure we were going to do something bad to the sculptures. He stayed very close.
He wasn’t really wrong. We’ve broken a few things in our past, but I’m pretty sure the sculptures, that were 10 feet away from the sidewalk, were safe. But then again, he probably read a post about baby James climbing a wrought iron fence.
Below is a picture of little Brooke and Joe not being bad. (All other photos have been destroyed.)
