  • We visited Laguna Gloria with friends. At present this is a nice, easy walk with a few art installations but it is more of a nature walk than a sculpture garden. Plans to develop the site are exciting...  more »
  • This small museum may be a bit off the beaten path and not downtown Austin, yet it offers a pleasant and art-inspired creation of imagination for both the painter in all of us and sculptor alike. The ...  more »
  • A true gem of old Austin beauty on the shores of Lake Austin. The grounds are spectacular with photo ops everywhere. The Artwork just adds to the entire experience.

  • I attended the Indie House Events launch at this beautiful venue. The parking is street parking so for bigger events I am unsure if they offer a different option but, I would opt for valet parking if you are having a wedding or classier affair. The grounds are gorgeous but, make sure you tell your guests to wear flats or shoes they can walk down stairs and across unpaved areas. The view at the bottom near the water is impeccable. I could see a beautiful wedding taking place here especially since they have a section for a ceremony with tiered seating for optimal views and picture taking options for all guests. I imagine that the area that we were in, which as water view access, would be great for a tented reception. I didn't see any bathroom options so, I can't comment on that but, overall this is a very beautiful venue with well manicured lawns that worked great for the event that I was at and I am sure it would for many others. It definitely has many photo op areas with lush greenery!
  • Serene and green but rather small - still a good spot to chill.
  • One of my favorite places to go. LOVE it here.
  • Laguna Gloria is part of The Contemporary (formerly the Austin Museum of Art) and a beautiful property near Lake Austin. My main experiences here have been the annual La Dolce Vita Food and Wine Festival that serves as a fundraiser for the art school. I've volunteered for the event several years in a row and love seeing all the new artwork that gets added year to year.
  • A real treasure of Austin. Beautiful grounds and a great place to bring friends from out of town. An oasis just a short drive from downtown.
