Museum District Things To Do

The main activity in the Museum District is in the name: visit museums. With 19 different museums in the area, there is always a new exhibit to explore. 

One of the largest collections of fine art in the country, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston houses more than 65,000 works spanning more than 6,000 years. Just outside the building is the Cullen Sculpture Garden, a hidden oasis filled with masterfully crafted sculptures from the 20th- and 21st century. 

Not your speed? Try The Houston Museum of Natural Science - with the Cockrell Butterfly Center - The Health Museum, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Children’s Museum of Houston and the list goes on and on. 

You can also spend the day at Hermann Park, 445-acres of tranquil Japanese Gardens, free entertainment at Miller Outdoor Theater and the Houston Zoo with more than 6,000 wildlife creatures. 

And hey there sports fans, the Museum District also includes NRG Stadium, home to the Houston Texans. If you aren’t able to get a ticket to the game, cheer on the Texans at The Address, a roomy sports bar with a great happy hour and multiple TVs.
