  • The Cathedral of Junk is a must see. It doesn't seem so large when you first walk up, but the structure is actually quite massive. Its very impressive, and the longer you look the more oddities you fi...  read more »
  • This man does not return phone calls no matter how much you call him. When you finally reach him you are told he is not showing. 
  • We took our grandkids to see this eclectic mix of junk and art and they loved it. This man's entire back yard is a cathedral of junk, put together in an interesting and adventurous way. Was recently t...  read more »
  • This is 'roadside America's at it's finest!!! I was so impressed by the Cathedral of Junk that I wandered in a stupor-wonder the whole time I was there. It is impressive. It is arty. It is inspirational. It is unique. It is in hidden in a backyard of a house in the city. Over 10,000 earthlings a year visit. I cannot praise this off-the-path attraction. One must see it to believe it. It is not junk. It is art. It is amazing. It is joy. Visit while in Austin. You'll be so very glad and happy you did.
  • I work at a hotel, and some guests from Germany asked me to find out the hours for Cathedral of Junk for them, so I hopped online and, finding no information other than a phone number, gave the owner a call. After learning an appointment is necessary, I set one up for them at noon the following day. I passed on all information to my guests about the suggested donation, where to park, etc. They were so excited for their appointment, but apparently the owner never showed, even after 30 minutes of knocking, calling out "hello?" etc. I understand he may have had an emergency or something, but without even a courtesy call explaining what happened, I would never recommend this place in the future.
  • This place is magical. Loved it so much, Vince allowed my wife and I to get married there four years ago.
  • This place is amazing! Vince is very friendly. The people that gave it a one star review and said he was rude didn't make an appointment. Well, duh! It's his home, have some consideration! How would you like entitled strangers showing up at your house unannounced? I highly recommend but let him know you're coming first
  • It's a wonderful place. Make an appointment first and make sure to donate! The creator is a great guy. If you're going sight seeing in Austin, this place should definitely be on your list :)
