Visit a Houston museum for free!

Arts & Entertainment, Community, General

Houston has one of the largest (and, in my opinion, most interesting) museum districts of any city in the country. From children’s activities and contemporary arts to photography and spirituality, there’s something for everybody. You can find exhibits, events, historical artifacts, and some very pretty spaces to view and visit.

Did you know that you can visit many of Houston’s museums for free? Some of them are always free, and some of them are free on specific days/dates. All you need to know is which is free when, and you can plan out your cultural expedition!
