The Museum Experience features one of the four walkable “zones” to help visitors navigate through the area and progressively learn more about all 19 museums which compose the Houston Museum District. On the last Saturday of January, April, July and September, one zone will showcase a handful of museums at a time, complete with special programming. The other museums in the District will be open even when their zone isn’t featured.
