Walk this way. This progressive audio experience will guide you through the cultural treasure trove known as the Museum District.
This 90-minute tour is practical and informative, taking you by the hand to specific museum locations and collections. But the tour itself is also a work of art itself: it is at once experimental, emotional, meditative, and purely beautiful: strolls through sculpture gardens and parks are often free of any narration, instead showering the listener with original sound compositions that enhance the physical surroundings.

There’s a surprise around every corner:

  • A Holocaust survivor shares her escape from Nazi-occupied Poland, in front of the Houston Holocaust Museum
  • A paleontologist discusses dinosaur poop at the Houston Museum of Natural Science
  • Echoes of Mohatma Ghandi’s speeches pulse in your ears as you stroll through a rose garden
  • The tour even incorporates a ride on the Houston Light Rail into the experience
