There are so many museums in the museum district, some large and take all day and others small for those with less attention span. You can park once and walk to several. There is a map available at many of them that shows which are close together. I would suggest parking at The Health Museum and walking to those that... More

Wonderful for the visitor! There are handy maps located in any of the Museums that will allow you to walk from museum to museum. Gardens and greenbelts add to the experience as you transverse locations.

Accessing the park, though, sometimes can be more thrilling than expected because people in crosswalks don't make folks slow down. The Cullen Sculpture Garden across from the MFA offers a fine variety... More

There are great museums in the district. We especially enjoyed the Natural Science Museum. With one 16-yr. old and an 8-yr. old, sometimes hard to entertain them both with the same attractions. There is more than enough offered here to cover these age ranges. The Zoo is good (not the best we've seen) but very pleasant. There is a huge... More

I like how all of the museums are within walking distance of each other. You can park and walk and have a great scenic view. Not going to the museums no problem you can still enjoy the walk in the district. Enjoy!
