Walk through Art, Science, Flowers and a Maze in a Half Day in the Houston Museum District
In this Half Day in Houston series, find a place to park, play, explore and eat… all in one spot. Pick what you like or combine with another Half Day post!
In this adventure, walk through the Museum of Fine Arts, wander through a Labyrinth, explore the Museum of Natural Science and climb a “mountain” at Hermann Park. (This was my birthday adventure this year!)
Look below for a map of the walking route.

One thing you need to see is this tunnel, inside the museum, right next to the Cafe Express. It connects two buildings… you can push a stroller through… and it’s super cool.
The rest of the museum may or may not be a fit for you. View theses Tips and Tools for visiting with kids and stay for a little bit or all day.
Right across from Cafe Express is the Labyrinth at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. Wander through the maze before heading to another museum!
Walk back towards the Centennial Gardens and stop by the Houston Museum of Natural Science. This is a great museum of families. If you have a membership, avoid the free hours because it’s busy… but if not, take advantage of them.
Stay for a little or a long time and learn about Energy, Chemistry, Paleontology and much much more. This is one of our favorite places to wonder around.
Before you head back to the parking lot, walk through the beautiful Centennial Gardens. Loop around and around the mound, crossing the waterfall again and again. Read more about it HERE!
