“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Sprawling northward from Hermann Park, the Museum District includes 18 institutions in a tree-lined, walkable neighborhood. The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the nation's largest fine art museums, and the paleontology wing of the Houston Natural Science Museum is an adventurous romp through millions of years of natural history. For cross-cultural historical perspectives, visit the Asia Society Texas Center, the Holocaust Museum and the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum. Take the kids to the award-winning Children's Museum and the splendidly landscaped Houston Zoo.
