Museum of Fine Arts Houston Planning A $450 Million Upgrade
One of the gems of Montrose as well as the Museum District is getting some major upgrades. CultureMap, among other media outlets, reports the Museum of Fine Arts Houston‘s recently announced $450 million planned expansion will be complete in four years.
The expansion will include “several new buildings, gardens, water features and even a top-tier restaurant,” with Steven Holl Architects out of New York heading up the bulk of the plans, which were unveiled Tuesday at a luncheon.
MFAH board chairman Rich Kinder told Culturemap the plan is to “put it all together” to make it one of the “premier museums in America.”
Out of the $450 million needed for the project, $330 million is already committed.
