The Humble tour is a 6-hour tour, beginning at 9:00 and ending at 3:00 PM. See the rough schedule below.
The name "Humble" came not from Humble Oil Company, as newcomers to the area often believe, but from a vagabond fisherman by the name of P.S. "Pleasant" Humble who wandered into the area in the late 1850s and settled along the banks of the San Jacinto River with his wife and family. Humble Oil Company got its name from the town near its most famous discovery, not the other way around.
The Mercer Arboretum can be substituted for the Humble Museum and the McKay Medical Museum on Sundays and Monday.
