Over the years, my wife, family and many friends have had many great times visiting the various museums in the area. HMFA is great and has many traveling exhibits. HMNS has things to captivate all ages. HCM is great for kids of varying ages but especially 1 and up.

Many museums are closed on Sundays, the one day that we really had to spend there. Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy very many museums. They offer free entrances on Thursdays to several museums if you're in the area. There's also several nice restaurants in the area.

The Houston Museum District is a must visit place when in Houston for fun or work. I was there during a work visit and is absolutely impresive place. Well organized, with regular and special expositions. I was there during the Tutankamon exhibition. A breathless exhibit. The ticket was not that cheap I can tell you but it worth every cent....

The Museum District is an awesome part of Houston. I live approximately 1 mile from here and it's one of my favorite places in Houston. You should check out Mixers and Elixirs at the HMNS. Also, the Children's Museum is also a great place to take my nieces and nephews. I will actually probably go there this Friday. You can... More

Don't miss the part of town when visiting Houston, TX! Its green and beautiful and full of museums and a couple of upscale hotels as well. There's a big fountain as well. It's one of the prettier neighborhood in Houston.

It is all within walking distance, with a nice park to rest before further sightseeing. Easy access from the downtown by a tram.

Traveling to Houston for art has become a tradition because of the easy access of the Museum District. Certainly a jewel in Houston's crown....
