Welcome to Museum District
About Homes for Sale in Museum District
Just southwest of downtown, in the pedestrian-friendly Museum District, more than 8.7 million visitors explore the 18 cultural institutions that make up the tree-lined, culture-filled neighborhood each year. The district is the proud home of the nation’s sixth largest art museum, offering guests 300,000-square-feet of space dedicated to paintings, sculptures, costumes, photography and textiles dating back to the antiquities. Other area highlights include—a vault containing the largest emerald crystal ever recovered in North America, a kid-run city complete with skyline, government and job roles, plus Houston’s first and only 4D theater.
The Museum District is bordered by Montrose, Texas Medical Center, and Rice University. Access to the district is made easy by the four METRO bus lines running through the area, and by the proximity of US 59 and State Highway 288.
Properties within the area range from historical homes and single-family bungalows to modern apartments, high-rise condos, and townhomes. The price range also varies, with old homes providing the more affordable options and the recent residential developments carrying a higher price tag. But if you want to live as close as possible to notable art and cultural institutions, then the Museum District is definitely on Houston subdivision you don’t want to miss!
