Museums in Houston

Houston is the largest city in Texas and the 4th largest city in the United States. Houston was founded in 1836, and the historical growth of the port and railroad industry, combined with oil discovery in 1901, have all driven the surges in the city’s population. In the mid-20th century, Houston became one of the world’s largest concentrations of healthcare and research institutions and NASA’s Johnson Space Center, has made Huston a centre for advanced technology industries. Houston is home to many cultural institutions and museums with an active visual and performing arts scene. Huston Museum’s that will be featured by the “Joy of Museums” include:
