“Love this Part of Houston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I live in Houston but only visit local attractions when we have company. With a houseful over the holidays we took advantage of the Museum district. It had something for everyone.

The kids loved the Children's Museum--absolutely fabulous! The adults visited the Museum of Fine Arts that had the exhibit of King Tut--need I say more? Th kids also had fun at the Museum of Science--bug and butterfly exhibit were huge hits!

“Plan a special day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

The Museum District offers a broad range of choices in restaurants, parks, museums of course and lovely outdoor settings. Everyone living in this huge metropolis should spend at least one day there and take advantage of all the city has to offer!

“Experience fun and culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

The Houston Museum District is an area where you can find something to do for all the members of your family. You could visit the Children's Museum and have a day of fun and learning experiences with your kids or in the other hand you could visit the Art Museum and learn and enjoy about all kinds of art. There is something for every age group! Make sure you have lots of time when you visit any of the museums if you really want to enjoy your visit. There so many things to do and see!
