  • Admit it, you have to be curious to visit this museum. It is not morbid at all. Very informative as to all aspects of the funeral business.

  • To die for- a great experience. Informative and entertaining all at the same time. Detailed displays of funerals from presidents to Popes. A hidden gem in north Houston.

  • I took my elderly parents here today. I have been here before and felt this would a good place for them to visit. It is accessible and quiet on a weekday. Greeted promptly and cheerfully by two ladies in the gift shop. My parents enjoyed reminiscing about seeing similar type vehicles in their hometown that were on display. The museum was a good size for them, not overwhelmingly big like the MFA or something. It’s nice to go to a museum and not be overwhelmed with people and massive parking lots! It makes for a nice afternoon trip. Cute gift shop and spotless restrooms.
  • I loved this place it has something for almost anyone. It has a great collection of old antique hearses and the vintages are amazing all the way back to the teens to present. Also presidential notes on deaths of past presidents and movies on their funerals. Also movie stars and Rock and Roll Legends. Great medical display on how they embalmed people from Egypt to present. If you are in the Houston area l would definitely try to view this Museum. My wife and her best friend enjoyed it as much as me. Phill White
