  • Well preserved home and studio of the artist who created some of our most important sculptures. Museum is small and most Austinites have never visited but certainly a rewarding place to visit.

  • Elizabeth Net Museum is worth a visit. This tribute to a unique artist. Still under restoration, it is well a visit. While there review Elizabet’s life. Not my go to museum but worth a visit.

  • Such a pretty building with so much history! I have been to the state Capitol many many times but after visiting this museum I found out that the statues of Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin we’re done by Elisabet Ney! It was really amazing to see her multiple attempts before she did the final product that was in the Capitol it’s self! There were so many other statues that you could read about and you could go all the way to the top of the building into her work/ private room! The trials behind the building were just as cute with the bridge over the creek! I would recommend going here before the state Capitol!
  • We never knew this was here ! We all enjoyed it! My husband found this place on a post from Instagram. We went to visit with our kids. We all didn’t know much about Elisabet Ney but after our visit we all learned something new. They provide a booklet of very informative information for you to read along the way. It also goes by numbers so you know what your reading on. I highly recommend and don’t forget to go upstairs
  • Elisabet Ney was such a talented sculptress. Definitely worth the visit. The staff was so nice and helpful. My sister and I were excited to find a portrait of our 2x Great-Grandfather. Dr Ralph Steiner was Ms Ney’s physician and friend.
  • Went on a free day, Sunday! Museum is so beautiful it’s like a time capsule. There’s so much to learn and admire. There’s a packet guide that you receive at the entrance so you can better understand the art pieces you’re looking at. The garden outside is nice. The curators are kind and informative. I hope to return again.
  • What a gem. Found by accident as I was in the area getting lab work and after a coffee and saw the sign for the museum.
