  • For one thing, this was my Grandfathers Best friend when he was growing up. They lived next door to each other and played together all day every day sculpting. And that is all my Grandfather did his whole life. He ended up getting married and having 9 children. When the Depression came and people couldn't afford the Luxury of buying Art, he started making Tombstones. He carved all the Beautiful Roses, Flowers, Leaves, Letters and Scrollwork on the Tombstones to support his family. He and Elizabeth remained friends their whole lives.
  • Very informative and a great place to walk around. The staff was knowledgeable and willing to provide answers. The curator gave a tour of "staff only" areas of the house and we were able to see some of the not on display sculptures. Her husbands work room has a hidden roof acces, very cool!
  • Super friendly staff. I hear if ya tip em good, they'll show ya the secret passage way to the governor's mansion.
  • Wonderful museum & grounds planted with Texas native plants. Filled with amazing art made by an amazing woman.
  • Awesome little museum in the heart of Hyde Park! Numerous sculptures to see, but the best part is the architecture and beautiful artifacts found upstairs.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
