The Museum Experience is Houston’s newest cultural block party! Join the Houston Museum District on the last Saturday of January, April, July and September. The Museum Experience features four walk-able “zones” to help visitors navigate through the area and learn more about all 20 museums in a more personal way. Each zone will showcase a handful of museums at a time, complete with special programming, pedicabs in select zones, and food trucks.

For Zone 2, please join HCCC for the Annual Gathering of the Guilds, featuring all-day craft demonstrations by a variety of local artist guilds. Bring the whole family to see demonstrations, current exhibitions, artist studios and more. This year, featured guilds include:

  • ClayHouston
  • Contemporary Handweavers of Houston
  • Gulf Coast Woodturners
  • Houston Area Blacksmiths Association
  • Houston Bead Society
  • Houston Calligraphy Guild
  • Houston Metal Arts Guild
  • Polymer Clay Guild
