ART EVENT “Twilight Tour” at MFAH’s Rienzi

June 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$35

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 2024 at 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM: Visit Rienzi — the MFAH house museum for European decorative arts — enjoy wine, light bites, and live music against the beautiful backdrop of twilight. Explore the galleries and chat with docents about works of art in the Rienzi Collection. This event is for ages 21+ and tickets are $35 nonmembers, $30 MFAH members.

Rienzi is situated on four acres of wooded gardens in the historic River Oaks neighborhood, about five miles from the main MFAH campus and about two miles from Bayou Bend, the MFAH house museum that focuses on American decorative arts and paintings.

Formerly the home of philanthropists Carroll Sterling Masterson and Harris Masterson III, Rienzi was designed by prominent Houston architect John Staub in 1952. Opened to the public in 1999, Rienzi houses a substantial collection of European decorative arts, paintings, furnishings, porcelain, and miniatures. Rienzi welcomes visitors for tours, family programs, lectures, music performances, and a variety of special events.

Docent-Led Tours and Self-Guided Visits: Because of the unique setting of Rienzi, visits to the house and art collection are by advance ticket purchase. Small groups and individuals are welcome.
