to 7:00 pm
Venue
Houston Museum District

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 19 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. The other museums in the District will be open even when their zone isn’t featured.

The Museum Experience events will happen during normal museum hours, giving visitors ample time to explore without feeling rushed to make it to the next program. Visitors can simply walk or bike from one museum to the next venue in that quadrant. All four events won’t be entirely free, however. Ticketed museums will be charging admission fees, unless otherwise stated. Visitors should note that 11 of the museums are free every day and the other eight offer free times once a week or once a month.

The first event features Zone 1 on Saturday, January 26. Click here to learn about special programming for the day.
