So much to see and do here. Every kind of exhibit you could think of and all air conditioned. You can spend a week here and not see it all. A great way to taste the world. Old and new. Put your walking shoes on and give it a try.

This area is a must if you plan to visit Houston. There are museums for everyone. My grandson loves the Children's Museum as well as the Museum of Natural History. Actually I enjoyed them myself. There are plenty of sights to see, great places to eat, and ample parking.

This museum area makes it convenient too see everything at once as opposed to having to go to separate areas costing you more travel time and more money. This museum district is also surrounded by some beautiful historical parks. Many of the museums are free on Thursday. You can easily catch the metro line to the museum district from downtown.

Near Rice University and the Texas Medical Center, this is one of the most beautiful parts of Houston. There are several museums within walking distance of each other - lots to offer for everyone with the variety. Places to eat, get a drink, see amazing art, enjoy great culture.

excellent area ... one of the best yet one of the least talked about of the US metro areas... Houston needs to publicize its art aspect more don't let LA , NY , SF and Chicago steal the show

The Houston Museum of Fine arts at 5601 Main in the Houston Museum district is, we thought, a great way to spend an afternoon with your date.

Major kudos to the city of Houston for encouraging the placement of well over a dozen museums near a beautiful city park and Rice University. You can spend a whole day at some of the larger museums or break you day up into multiple visits with no need to move your car! It's also on the Metro Rail line so... More
