Living in the Museum District

The Museum District is a small but mighty corner of the inner-loop, best known for its tree-lined streets and quaint atmosphere. The apartment communities in the area fit right in with the upscale residential feel of the neighborhood, consisting mainly of modern high-rises and luxury communities. 

A quick google search will tell you that the Museum District is known as the cultural heart of Houston, and for good reason. There are 19 museums, galleries, and artistic institutions within a 1.5-mile radius (11 of which are free to visit all the time)! Whether you’re looking for art, history, or culture, there’s something for you here. 

Looking to stroll a scenic pathway instead? The Museum District still has you covered. On its south end, you’ll find a total urban-oasis in Hermann Park, 445 acres of some of the city’s best outdoor entertainment. A selection of trails and areas like the Urban Forest and the Japanese Garden are perfect for those looking to get their steps in. It’s also home to family-friendly spots like The Houston Zoo and Miller Outdoor Theater (where you can catch a show free of charge). Other local park favorites include The Pinewood Cafe, pedal boats on McGovern Lake, and the Hermann Park Railroad.

Possibly the most key detail of the Museum District is its tremendous accessibility. Nestled between Downtown and the Medical Center, residents enjoy quick and easy access to the Southwest freeway, US HWY 59, and the METRORail. 

Finding an Apartment in the Museum District 

The beautiful atmosphere, sidewalks, and neighborhood vibe make the Museum District a great area to reside in. While the area doesn’t have an abundance of apartment communities, those that are in the area are known for their top-notch amenities and luxe finishes. Many of which are newer builds and modern high-rises. But with 1 bedroom units in the Museum District starting at $1600, they definitely come with a price tag.
