After visiting The MFA, we found this unique sculpture museum just outside the MFA. The tranquility of the place helped release the stress of the week. Right on the other side there's a waffle truck you can get food from, being it back to the garden and enjoy the rest of the day. It is quiet peaceful.

Unique and well placed sculpture of various sizes, styles and shapes, and metals. One of the surprising pieces was one that looked like a ivy type that appeared dry (dusk in December) and was actually the metal art dropped over a low wall.

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is an attractive sanctuary. They have an impressive collection of world class sculpture in a wonderfully landscaped space. It is across the street from the MFA. Great place to eat a bag lunch away from the hustle and bustle.

This is across the street from the Contemporary Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Art it's unpretentious and a great place to take the kids so they can blow off steam after being quiet at the museums-- plus there is usually a food truck parked right outside of the garden.

The Cullen Sculpture Garden is located across the street from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and houses some of the great sculptures from the museum and sculptures on loan. The Garden, by itself is a work of art where one can either relax and muse about life, have a peaceful lunch or walk around Its acre of trees, sloping... More

Found this sculpture garden next to the Fine Arts Museum - a nice walk through some great modern art. Surprised at the Rodin's there, and all was interesting.

Great place to walk, view art and talk. A lot of people do not know about this place. One of the top free places to go. It is in a great area for art. Probably a great place to visit in the fall when the weather is nice.
