The Museum District is one of Houston’s most iconic areas – a neighborhood whose appeal extends to more than just its collection of exhibits and galleries.
Houston’s Museum District is home to a thriving urban community. Its reputation as one of Houston’s best neighborhoods rests on its beautiful real estate, pedestrian-friendly streets and ideal location in the heart of Houston’s inner loop.
Highway59/Interstate 69 and the Highway 288 make up its northeast corner borders.
The Museum District is nestled between the Texas Medical Center to the south and Midtown to the north, which, in turn, is adjacent to downtown. This proximity to the city’s key areas makes the district a very coveted area.
The Museum District is zoned under the Houston Independent School District, Texas’s largest public school district and the seventh largest in the U.S.
