Houston is yours to explore.

The Mini Mural Tours are the perfect adventure for the entire family. Download the maps today to get your journey started!

The Mini Murals Tours are a visual excursion where residents and visitors can explore Houston’s iconic beautified traffic signal boxes, now considered mini works of public art. The tours offer discovery by foot, bike, car and more.

UP Art Studio has partnered with multiple area hotels, Houston BCycle, Mister McKinney’s Historic Houston, and the Houston History Bus to create “Mini Murals Tours”, ranging from self-guided bicycle and driving tours to organized artist-led tours.

The Mini Murals Tours are perfect for local and regional families seeking a family-friendly activity and biking enthusiasts who have an affinity for murals, public art, or street art.

Tour sponsors include Visit Houston / Houston First, Greater Northside Management District, Hobby Area District, and Houston Public Works.
