  • Wow, that was an experience to this formation to end-of-life products be seen together in a building. The artist and administrator would like to first receive calls so he let us know, that he not every day people all over floor. Since 1989 he is collecting waste, in order to add it to his construction work. It seems in it really what smaller than on a TV documentary or picture. That's why it was nice to make it a im really to admire.

  • If you value particularly to visit it, book it. We arrived in this neighborhood, where the impression was more that of being the "intruders" from visitors. In addition the cartel, not very visible, out of this messy house, invited us to book a visit. Throwing the eye, we could see this pile of "stuff", not particularly great among other things. I don't think it's worth it.

  • We didn't make an appointment, so we just got to see this tower of junk from the street. It was worth the trip because we live within 2 miles of this place, and it definitely is "keeping Austin weird"...  more »

  • Pretty cool little place. We didn't know about setting an appointment but he let us in anyway. $10 donation. It's just a guy's backyard where he has wired and cemented together a massive structure of junk! The level of detail given to it is impressive, as is the fact that it is actually standing.
  • 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.
  • One of the coolest things I've ever seen! I felt like a kid again!
  • 100% pure Austin-weird and wonderful. Like a hoarder created a treehouse from your favorite childhood toys, and things.
  • 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.
