Museum District - Neighborhood Information

Since its formation in 1997, the Houston Museum District has grown into one of the country's premier cultural destinations.  The District is overseen by the Houston Museum District Association, which exists to facilitate collaboration among its members.

As the name implies, the Museum District is located in the middle of Houston's cultural center place. The Museum District, so called because of its location, is surrounded by a variety of museums and other cultural and entertainment community venues.  A short, but scenic drive through Houston's Hermann Park will take you to the heart of the Houston Museum District and its 16 museums.

The Houston Museum District has everything to keep the whole family entertained, including:

  • Houston Museum of Natural Science with permanent and special exhibits,

  • Children's Museum with special activities for kids of all ages,

  • Houston's Zoo,

  • Museum of Contemporary Arts with thousands of unique and famous paintings and sculptures,

  • the Museum of Science with overwhelming scientific information.

This desirable community enjoys the diversification evident in its eclectic blend of fine restaurants, art galleries, shops and boutiques, private and public schools, and more.  The free METRO bus shuttles will make stops at or near each of the four METRORail stations in the Houston Museum District.
