The Houston Museum District is great. We got there by going on the Metro Rail which stops very close to it, only $1.25 each so you don't need to worry about parking. Several museums around aswell as Hermann Park and Houston Zoo. Buildings are really nice and most of them quite old. Worth a visit...

Hard to find expensive parking, too many panhandlers and not enough nightlife options for a city this size.

I do dearly wish that the museums were a bit closer together so that walking could be feasible between them instead of driving and parking at different locations. There are many great museums in the district though and worth the visit

Houston's Museum District was very disappointing, to be honest. There's really not that many museums to begin with, especially for such a HUGE city that is rapidly growing. There's very little signage and not much is advertised. Museums in the area are pretty expensive and the eating options at the museums are few to none.

Went to a fun art exhibit at the Museum, once with a date, and once with girl friends for a Happy Hour event. It was fun to explore the art, share intepretations, and chat.

Museum district has it all! Park, shopping, culture, food, and even museums. For breakfast or lunch Eatsie Boys can't be beat. Look for the old English phone booth. While you are there play chess on giant chess board outside. Drive through Hermann Park and roll down the hill at Miller theater. Then hit the Fine Art Museum and spend the... More

There is plenty to see in the museum district. You can park and walk to more than one museum. Two a day is my limit. Lunch nearby and drive on home. Wonderful day.

It's one of those hidden secrets nestled right in the middle of downtown Houston but if you don't know about it you would never find it or guess that it is there!!! What a pleasant surprise to find it. Perfect size to take the grandkids just enough rides and indoor... More
