Best thing in Marfa! Located in the residential part south of downtown. You can walk around here and see things from outside for FREE, I would give that a 2/3 star review. BUT if you can shell out for the $25 Guided Day Tour (starts...More
Having known nothing of Donald Judd or his particular taste in art and desolate geographical locations, I wandered around sort of confused and concluded that the cement blocks looked interesting. My friend however, who is more knowledgeable than me, found the Chinati exhibits fascinating and...More
