Located in Central Houston, the Museum District is one of the Bayou City’s key neighborhoods. It houses some of the most visited museums and institutions in the country, including the Museum of Fine Arts and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Apart from having the second largest number of museums in a contiguous area, the Museum District is also one of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods. It is located along two major freeways, South and Southwest, and has three MetroRAIL stations within its borders.

Years of community-driven efforts have led to the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets and vibrant atmosphere. In the late 1970s, several civic organizations and associations came together to develop a pedestrian-friendly district around the Museum of Fine Arts.
