Well . . . I live there. Or more accurately, I live here, in Houston's museum district. For all those who say, "Gosh! This is where I'd like to live!" - they may be right. And it's a wonderful place to visit - museum after museum; gallery after gallery; largely undisturbed houses dating from the 1920's and 1930's. 43 restaurants,... More

As the title says, it is a full day activity. You can visit few museums within walking distance. Best months to visit are during the spring. Many of them have a free day for the public at not charge.

Definitely the prettiest part of Houston. Lots of neat sculptures and vegetation. Lots of museums, unfortunately I didn't have time to visit many of them. Would love to go back!

The museums are very interesting, but also pricey ($15 per adult). By comparison, you can go to the fine arts museum in Dallas for free. We wanted to visit the Asia Society Texas Center, but found out that all of the main exhibits were closed. Rice University is nearby, and very beautiful to look at, but unfortunately, with the traffic,... More

If you like museums, you can spend several days walking from museum to museum and see some of the finest collections anywhere.

Houston's amazing!!! Enjoy the diversity if this area. Look up your favorite museum collection. International options for everyone. Perfect for young or old. Most have a free day check out the websites. Several of these locations are walkable. Plan your map and save some time parking. If you are doing biz in a downtown building, or the med center, the...
