The Houston Museum of Fine Arts is located in the museum district of the city. The original building became too small too quick so, another building across the street was build not long ago, to fulfill the needs of Houston's ever growing population. The two buildings are connected with a tunnel under the street.
This time we went to the museum to see "The Cartier Collection". 209 masterpieces of jewelry and objects, picked out of 1200 (the private Cartier collection of Cartier) by the architecture and design icon Ettore Sottsass.
Again pictures within the museum where not permitted.
