Make plans to experience Houston’s Museum District for free! Houston’s Museum District Day 2012 is a fabulous way to visit the 18 participating museums in the museum district without charge. Enjoy free performances, demonstrations, and hands-on activities at the museums from 10 am – 5 pm. Families can introduce their kids to diverse displays of art, science, nature, and history. Lots of food and fun, as well, including food trucks! The Radio Disney van will be at Houston Museum of Natural Science from 2 pm – 4 pm as well as the Channel 11 anchors and reporters.
Check out the museum day schedule online in Museum District Day 2012 .pdf.
Museums are divided by walkable zones on the Museum District Day 2012 map. Plus, ride the METRORail for free Saturday, thanks to the light rail’s partnership with KHOU and “The Ellen Degeneres Show”. New this year: free pedicabs will be available (don’t forget to tip) in place of complimentary shuttles. Free and paid parking lots are listed, as well.
