The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas

Welcome to The Museum of Fine Arts here in H-town! Come see what it has to offer on this visit with me!  The above photo is of the “The Light Inside” the colors change every few minutes.  The museum does a fine job of getting great exhibits along with housing the permanent exhibits.
