Bayou Bend Study Tour

Sign up now for the Bayou Bend Study Tour.

Bayou Bend Collection & Gardens is Houston's gateway to America's past.

With over 2,500 masterpieces of American furniture, paintings, silver and ceramics on display, Bayou Bend provides insight into the evolution of decorative style in America.

All objects are displayed in room settings and galleries throughout the historic home of legendary Houstonian Ima Hogg (1882-1975). The home also features 14 acres of organically maintained gardens with southern plantings and native woodland features.

Join us for an orientation to the collection, focused tour of object, and exploration of the grounds, and learn more about American culture, Texas heritage, Southern gardens, and a Houston legend.
