If you love arts and culture, then you may enjoy residing in the Houston Museum District.

As you can already guess, this Houston neighborhood is the cultural and arts center of the Bayou City, boasting a collection of 18 various museums in the district.

History of the Museum District

The Museum District started out as a community project in the 1970s with the intention of providing safe and convenient pedestrian access to the museums in the area.

The initiative started out as the Montrose Project, and became an official organization named the Museum District Development Association of Houston.

Projects included tree-planting and road and street renovations. The result was the rejuvenation of the area, making it one of Houston’s most recently developed districts.

The Museum District refers roughly to the area within a 1.5-mile radius from the Mecom Fountain in Hermann Park.

It is bordered by Montrose, Texas Medical Center, and Rice University. Access to the district is made easy by the four METRO bus lines running through the area, and by the proximity of US 59 and State Highway 288.

The museums in the district

The museums in the district are diverse; you can find a museum for almost any demographic.

Some of the museums in the area are The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, and the Rice University Art Gallery.

For your family outings, you should visit the Children’s Museum of Houston, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Health Museum.

All of the museums in the district offer free hours. Some museums do not charge entrance fees at all. You can also find entertainment parks in the area, such as the Hermann Park and the Houston Zoo.

As the district’s popularity grew, new commercial establishments, like retail shops, souvenir shops, and restaurants of differing variety, were constructed.

You can see some of the historical areas in the district being lined with new buildings and constructions—a testament to the dynamic and progressive development plans in the district.

Living in the Museum District

Properties within the area range from historical homes and single-family bungalows to modern apartments, high-rise condos, and townhomes. The price range also varies, with old homes providing the more affordable options and the recent residential developments carrying a higher price tag.

But if you want to live as close as possible to notable art and cultural institutions, then the Museum District is definitely on Houston subdivision you don’t want to miss!
