If you've only got time to visit one museum don't miss the Houston Museum of Natural Science! There dinosaur exhibit if like nothing I've seen. If you have time for two museums, and you have kids, make sure you go to the Children's Museum. It's incredible as well!

Couldn't get in to see the Magna Carta tough. Lines too long and not well organized. We had shorter lines at the Louvre in Paris.

I love the Houston Museum district! It is great to be able to walk and access so much culture in one area! My only regret is that I did not have more time to experience more of the museums, although I did visit a couple. If you are looking for cultural diversity alongside a fun, uplifting, educational experience than this... More

Houston traffic is some of the worst and thankfully everything is within walking distance though in the Texas heat not so much. the HMD offers something for everyone and is worth the visit. Check their website for listings on when the museums have free admission, usually on Thursdays.

If you find yourself near the Museum District of Houston, be prepared to spend lots of time there. Within a short walk of one another you will fine the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Natural Science, the Houston Zoo and the Hermann Park.

Love the new shopping area. D-Day wasn't my favorite Imax production but was still interesting. Will return depending on what is being displayed or shown.
