    I do like the simple and modern aspect of this museum. It offers sometimes a unique viewpoint, yet giving your mind motivation for great imagination. Plus, the activities they offer for kids is quite ...  more »

    A great place to gift shop! There's a lot of unique items and the front desk lady was very kind. The only downfall was that the gallery was closed when I went but I'm sure it's a wonderful experience when it is open.

    Beautiful Mexican culture items very colorful little gift shop but at the time i went the Museum art gallery was closed for a new installation. Definitely call ahead to see if the gallery is open.

    Cool gift shop and cute Mexican culture items. Gallery was closed for installation; I just wished there were signage outside stating so.

    Exhibits are well laid out, was a lot of fun to walk through. Museum was dedicated to one artist when I went, was cool to see different artwork from throughout his career.

    I would love to give this gallery a higher rating but they have some work to do on notifying the public on their schedule re: exhibit changing. My husband and I had been looking forward to touring their gallery (and hopefully picking up a piece). Unfortunately, when we arrived we were instructed that they would be changing their exhibits later that day so they had closed off the gallery. We still checked out their gift shop - which has some wonderful items btw - their "internet was down" so we were fortunate we had just enough cash to pick up a few small items. We finally asked if the pieces in display now or the new exhibit would be shown online for this interested in purchasing...no dice. I hope this gallery gets some help to modernize their establishment significantly.

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.
