    I was so disappointed to arrive to the museum to find a sign that said, "Closed Indefinitely". Be sure to call before you go! They may or may not reopen.  more »

    I sorely wished the hosts were more enthusiastic and gave more knowledge about the history of the house and the time period. We got a ten minute tour that really could have been done with a good pamphlet. Worth the 5 dollars if you literally need to kill time. Also the tours start at the top of the hour so even though the tour only takes 10 minutes you will have to wait. Overall I give it an "okay" rating. What a waste because this was an important time period in Texas History that is wasted without a good/knowledgeable/enthusiastic tour guide.

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.
