Museum District

Just southwest of downtown, in the pedestrian-friendly Museum District, more than 8.7 million visitors explore the 19 cultural institutions that make up the tree-lined, culture-filled neighborhood each year. The district is the proud home of the nation’s sixth largest art museum, offering guests 300,000-square-feet of space dedicated to paintings, sculptures, costumes, photography and textiles dating back to the antiquities. Other area highlights include—a vault containing the largest emerald crystal ever recovered in North America,a kid-run city complete with skyline, government and job roles, plus Houston’s first and only 4D theater.
