Arts & Culture
Houston hosts 21,000 concerts, plays, exhibitions and other arts programs annually, giving visitors access to a wide variety of cultural programs.
On any given night, it's a safe bet that there's a show somewhere in Houston's Theater District. The 17-block area is home to Houston's resident performance companies including the symphony, opera, drama and ballet. Tucked between the bustling Midtown and Medical Center areas, rests Houston's leafy, park-like Museum District. Nineteen world-class institutions, including the Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Houston Museum of Natural Science are clustered in this area, drawing a reported seven million visitors to the district each year.
And in nearly every neighborhood in between, visitors will find public art, theater companies, performances and a vibrant creative community waiting to welcome you.
