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.

I admit there are many good museums in the district. However, many of them are just average. Walking distance to most of the museums. Nothing very surprising actually.

In Houston, due to the hot and humid weather most of the time, people don't walk much. The Museum District of Houston offers several museums all within a few minutes of each other. Not far away is the Herman Park & Zoo. You can easily spend 2-3 days just exploring the Museum District and nearby Montrose. This area is less... More

I absolutely love going to the museum district. It's a great place for couples, family and even going solo. There is so much to do between all the museums and park nearby.

We have always enjoyed going to the museums and to eat at the restaurant, as well as attend catered exhibits, before viewing both old and new exhibitions.

Parking the car is not an issue in this neighborhood but going into any of the attractions you will have to pay. Worth a quick walk.
