  • 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.  more »

  • This studio museum was amazing to explore. Love Elisabet Ney and her husband's history. The studio she designed was equally impressive. Her clay sculptures were beautiful, including the last piece she had worked on before she died, Prometheus! This place is a must for anyone visiting Austin. Architecture was incredibly designed and built by her, totally functional and resembled a small castle.
  • My daughter and I visited Elisabet Ney Museum on our mother daughter weekend. I grew up in Austin and went to UT but never to this museum. We really enjoyed the sculptures, and learning about Elizabeth Ney. There's a nice walk down to the creek behind the museum. If you enjoy Texas history and art this is a must stop location and Austin. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and welcomed us warmly and answered all of our questions. I plan on coming back.
  • Beautiful, original home and grounds of Elisabet Ney. Lots of exhibitions of her work. Some originals, some copies. Reflects her life, times and work. Entry is free. Well worth the effort and time.....besides how often do you find thius kind of quality education and visual displays for free.
  • Such a fun little museum. They have a lot original plaster casts and a couple marbles. The building and lot were awesome with secret doors and a bookcase door that we got to look at. The kids loved all the secrets. Nice little contemporary show of wall art in one room that is has rotating shows.
  • I love showing friends this hidden gem in hyde park. The sculptures, the history is all cool and its donation based.
