Very nice area of Houston where there are museums, parks and the zoo. There is also upscale living and dining. Many of the museums in the area are either free or offer free admission during certain days of the week. Great area for a stroll.

Our museum district is neither as concentrated nor as esthetically attractive as some others. But the museums themselves are stupendous. When visiting the MFA don't forget to go across the street to the excellent sculpture garden.

Many museums in walking distance. Also close to the Hermann Park if you like to relax on a park bench. We parked at the MFA parking garage which is convenient and inexpensive. There is also a reduction of the fee if you visited the MFA.

We were in the medical center, museum district for 3 days in August and looked for some place to eat. A shuttle driver said Rice Village offered the most choices, so we took the shuttle, which was only a mile away, to find 7 different restaurants and 3 small sports bars. We could not have been happier with our choice... More

The museums are all close together, so you can fit in whatever suits your taste. They are also close to Herman Park and zoo.

This is a first class arts district, you can easily walk to every gallery and museum and the vibe is very much Southern - soft and warm with lots of trees and gardens. Exhibits are all world-class and docents are on hand to explain the details. Some of the galleries/museums are interesting in themselves as works of art and architecture... More
