Steeped in art and history, Houston houses some of the most fascinating museums and landmarks in the South. And, what better way to experience them than from the safety of your apartment in Houston? Take a trip with us as we explore some of the most fascinating virtual tours of Houston’s most interesting places.
MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, HOUSTON
Just 10 minutes down the road from Monarch Medical Center is the Museum of Fine Arts. Home of more than 70,000 pieces of individual art pieces, this Houston cultural icon has an impressive web presence, with virtual tours of exhibits, online cinematic features, and a searchable database of its considerable collection. There are also fun projects and tutorials geared towards those of us who are spending more time at home.
THE HERITAGE SOCIETY AT SAM HOUSTON PARK
This non-profit organization aims to preserve some of Houston’s most interesting places, many just a stone’s throw from our apartments in Houston. Not only does this expansive website feature virtual tours of many of the historic homes and buildings in Texas, but it also has a “stories” section, detailing interesting facts about the collection’s artifacts.
THE MENIL COLLECTION
Venturing into more modern contributions, this downtown Houston museum emphasizes the elegance of its presentations. On the scene since 1987, its award-winning collection is a true Houston treasure. Also, adjacent to this main gallery are four additional museum buildings. They are Richmond Hall, Cy Twombly Gallery, Menil Drawing Institute, and the Byzantine Fresco Chapel.
You can easily spend a day or even a weekend perusing Houston’s local culture from the comfort of your home, thanks to these organizations.
