Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens—Houston’s home for America’s treasures—is the MFAH house museum for American decorative arts and paintings. The objects are displayed in the home of legendary philanthropist and collector Ima Hogg (1882–1975), who gave her estate to the MFAH in 1957. More than 20 rooms showcase the evolution of American style and taste from 1620 to 1876. The mansion is situated on 14 acres of formal gardens and lush woodlands. Bayou Bend is open year-round to visitors and offers a variety of programs for children, families, and adults.
