Museum District Day 

Saturday, September 15, 2012

10 AM - 5 PM




As the country's fourth largest city, Houston is among the most popular destinations for travelers, according to Trip Advisor. And it's no surprise to locals that one of the city's major draws is the Houston Museum District. The District is home to thousands of masterpieces, historic relics and groundbreaking science experiments, just waiting to be discovered. On Saturday, September 15, Houston will celebrate the 16th annual Museum District Day. Once again, 18 museums will be free and many museums will host special events and exhibits. Many of the museums are free all year round, but Museum District Day is a truly special occasion with a variety of fun and educational opportunities. Visitors are encouraged to walk from one museum to another, but free pedicabs will also be available - a new addition to the festivities.

Museum District Day 2012 at Lawndale Art Center
Galleries Open 10 AM - 5 PM

Sketchbook Activity 11 AM - 4 PM


During this year's Museum District Day, Lawndale invites visitors to create their own personalized sketchbooks, inspired by the work of exhibiting artist, Candace Hicks. Enjoy complimentary ice-cold lemonade and decorate our back patio with sidewalk chalk. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to cool off by taking a look at our current round of exhibitions. Please join Lawndale, and our fellow Houston Museum District neighbors in this free and exciting annual event!
