Living in the museum district might give me a different perspective than most, but this is a fabulous part of town. If it is sunny out, you can visit Hermann Park to see the fountains or go to the Zoo. If it is rainy, duck into the museums and have a world-class experience. Plus, this is one of the few... More

Take the time to see the best Cultural Oasis outside of Manhattan. Houston provides a glimpse of what you would see in the Metropolitan at a 10th of the time and a lot less crowds. See what the wealth in Houston have invested their money and future cultural education so that others can see what they may never be able... More

The visit was absolutely amazing. The value of these cars, for the time they were manufactured represented an amazing technical performance. They were all unique in the sense that they had a sense of luxury with a lot of taste in color and shape.

The Museum District is well named with such places as the Menil Gallery and the Houston Center for Photography. We discovered eateries like Luigi's Pizza and the bar adjacent to it. The proximity to downtown Houston makes it a perfect location. There is more to discover and I look forward to that.

Take the red light rail to the Museum District and then take a stroll. The Museum of Fine Arts is located at the station - and other museums are nearby. The neighborhood is low key but lively with fine collections of fine art.

There are many great little museums in this part of town. I've been to many of them and still trying to wrap my head around Cy Twombly.

Houston's Museum district is marvelous. Most of the museums are within walking distance or a short car ride. The area is very green and shaded with normous oaks so it makes strolling as you go from museum to museum quite pleasant.

Houston is advertised as a great financial center, a great sports center, a great base for the US space program and the largest port on the Gulf Coast. While all of that is true, in my mind, Houston is also a great cultural city that competes very favorably with the other great cultural cities in the country: Chicago, San Francisco... More
