The Museum Experience is a quarterly series in Houston’s vibrant Museum District in its third year. It essentially divides the district’s 19 museums into four zones and highlights those museums each quarter to inform and educate Houstonians.

This cultural block party will be held the last Saturday of January, April, July and September with January 31 being the first!

Zone 1 museums January 31 include The Menil Collection (Cy Twombly, Richmond Hall), Rothko Chapel, and Houston Center for Photography. All three museums are free Saturday — and free every day!

The day features special programming and food trucks. Zone 1’s schedule of events includes a photo scavenger hunt, acroyoga class at Rothko Chapel, arts and crafts inspired by Cirque du Soleil, musical performances by Da Camera Young Artists, and writing workshops and readings from Writers in the Schools. Don’t miss the live art installation at Menil Park or the last day for Ghandi’s exhibit at The Menil Collection. Museum admission still applies at other museums outside Zone 1.

Watch for future Museum Experience dates: April 25, July 25, and September 26.
