When it comes to sheer cultural output, Houston packs a mighty punch. This dynamic, sprawling metropolis boasts some of the finest restaurants in the country, gorgeous architecture and a wonderful arts scene. So it’s no surprise, then, that Houston’s museums (of which there are many) are simply world-class things to do, not to be missed. The Museum District, a leafy, quiet neighborhood between the Texas Medical Center and Rice University, contains 18 museums in a 1.5-mile radius. Best of all, there’s a museum to suit nearly everyone’s interests here – whether you’re fascinated by great art, Texas culture or even funeral history (yep!), or looking for fun things to do with kids in Houston, there’s a little something for every type of museum-goer in this city.
