The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Other Worlds—Fantastic Visions

Sunday, Jul. 12, 2015

03:00 PM – 03:45 PM

Visitors can journey to extraordinary wonderlands this summer! The Museum is brimming with otherworldly destinations—real and imaginary, tangible and virtual.

On this 45-minute tour, guests might turn into a virtual monster; enter a fanciful time warp where teapots meet ostentatious factories; or beam themselves "back to the future" to explore a utopian world. All will be amazed by the way artists have transformed the real world into fantastic visions.
