The Museum District is a fabulous place to explore all that is great about Houston. Sophisticated and pleasant, I recommend MFAH, Natural Science and the Holocaust Museum as the 3 best attractions. And don't forget beautiful Hermann Park and the Meacom Fountain that are in the Museum District. Walk down Main Street to Sunset Blvd and see the Rice University campus - absolutely magnificent. We take all our out of town guests to the Museum District.

This area of Houston is one of the largest collections of museums int he country. It also borders the beautiful Hermann Park and the Texas Medical Center --- home of the largest medical center in the country!
The Museum District includes the Museum of Fine Arts --- the second largest collection of art in the country. The Houston Museum of Natural Science is also a fascinating place to take children.
It is all accessible by Metro Train.

I visited both the Menil Collection and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston; both of which were excellent. I was particularly impressed with the MFAH. Museum district is accessible from downtown via the light rail system. Easy to navigate.
