Just southwest of downtown, in the pedestrian-friendly Museum District, more than 8.7 million visitors explore the 19 cultural institutions that make up the tree-lined, culture-filled neighborhood each year. The district is the proud home of the nation’s sixth-largest art museum, offering guests 300,000 square feet of space dedicated to paintings, sculptures, costumes, photography and textiles dating back to the antiquities.

Getting Around

Six in the City$6 taxi rides anywhere downtown by any cab company. The $6 taxi fare applies to a trip, pick-up and drop-off, anywhere within the Downtown District bounded by I-45, I-10 and US-59. Now with double the amount of cab stands downtown and the ability to hail a cab when you need it, we’re making those shorts trips easy and affordable. Six in the City only applies when cabs are hailed in person; it does not apply to rides booked online. Hail one down on the street, look for the taxi icon along the roadways, call a cab company and request front-door pick-up service, or go to the nearest hotel for a queue!
