The cultural centers in Houston offer much to see and do. You can explore exhibits, attend programs, and even learn a new language. When you’re ready for a fun day out, head to these cultural centers near our Houston apartments.

Italian Cultural & Community Center of Houston 

A local fixture since 1976, the Italian Cultural & Community Center of Houston “celebrates and preserves Italian culture and history.” It welcomes everyone who wants to learn about Italy and its culture. The center hosts an annual fashion show, the Houston Italian Festival, and other fun events. In addition, the center is also home to the Italian Language School. The teachers are native to Italy, and they help students learn everyday words and phrases and ensure they can comfortably hold a conversation. The classes are held year-round and range from beginner to advanced.

The Russian Cultural Center – Our Texas highlights Russian culture. It’s where you can enjoy symphony performances, explore photography exhibits, and watch film screenings. You can also try qigong on Wednesday evenings. What’s more, you can enroll in the center’s online or in-person Russian language lessons for adults. The language school has a multi-level system ranging from beginner to fluent. Class sizes are small, and students enjoy learning in a casual, laid-back setting.

Better known as OCC, the Orissa Culture Center takes its name after a small state on the east coast of India once known as Orissa. Today, it’s called Odisha. The center hosts popular annual events throughout the year. They promote traditional music and dance from India and the world.
