This museum has way more than you think! I especially liked the fantasy coffins. Great piece of artwork by a man from Ghana. The museum was also a lot bigger than I had originally thought. They have lots of vintage hearses on display and other interesting exhibits. If you are in the area, visit this museum. You won't regret it.
Absolutely amazing. I can’t believe it took me so long to get here. I’m thrilled so many schools do field trips here. I would fallen in love with history at such a younger age. Whether you go left or right —you’ll start with some big history either way. We went towards the dead presidents and made our way to the popes. In between are amazing vehicles. There’s an entertainment section. As well, as history of mourning and cremation. I could’ve stayed there for hours. I learned so much. Beautiful displays and so tastefully done. Nothing was morbid or sick. I feel I could go back once a month and see/learn something new. And with only a $10 entry fee—it’s absolutely feasible to do that. The gift shop is the only time I’ve felt moved to buy something. This place is truly a treasure for the Greater Houston community.
