We have world-class museums and cultural landmarks
The city is filled with unique, world-class museums and cultural landmarks. There are 19 total museums in a 1.5 mile radius that make up the Houston Museum District. Houston's Museum of Fine Arts is among the largest museums in the U.S., and one of the best collections of American decorative art and furniture in the house of a former trustee, along with 14 acres of formal gardens. Mark Rothko spent three years creating the works of art that inhabit The Rothko Chapel, which he also helped design.
