The Museum District of Houston is home to 19 cultural, arts, and scientific institutions – the second largest number of museums in a contiguous area in the US. The district hosts 8+ million annual visitors. The location along the METRORail, South and Southwest freeways makes the Museum District one of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods.
The district is located between two of Houston’s major business and employment centers: Downtown Houston and the Medical Center. Other Key Districts like the Galleria and Upper Kirby/Greenway Plaza are minutes away. It is also located right next door to Montrose, a hip neighborhood known for its upscale bars, vintage stores and eclectic mix of eateries, which range from quaint cafes to Mexican cantinas and Mediterranean bistros. The location of the site provides access to a full variety of outdoor entertainment: Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo, and the Houston Garden Center.
