  • We found this place by mistake (we were looking for the botanical gardens)! The outdoor grounds are lush and green, and are decorated with beautiful sculptures in the middle of nature. There is a pond...  more »
  • Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. It is an Austin gem that is usually booked up for wedding and such. But, if you get an opportunity to visit, please do. You won't regret it!  more »

  • If you have an appreciation for handcrafted sculptures that carry some local history come to this little plot of land and soak up the love of Charles Umlauf by way of sculpture viewing. If you want things to be a bit more structured or don't quite have an eye for sculpted art, ask for a tour guide they'll lead you to understanding. This places serves as a beautiful wedding and reception venue & the prices aren't too bad for the location.
  • Want to be whisked away in the artistry of the sculpture world? Well, this is the place. A natural, peaceful sanctuary to explore the many works of Charles Umlauf nested on a quiet piece of land downhill from his once private residence. His sculptures r lifelike & real leaving room for a personal interpretation. Guests weave through the garden by way of dirt paths, around ponds with lily pads, arching, large shade trees, a glass atrium for events & a welcoming that says take a seat, create & stay awhile. One could get lost in their own creative mind & world just as I imagine what Umlauf wanted us to. A definite must visit & see.
  • We saw alot of sculptors both inside and in a garden setting. A great place to meditate. We also learned about Farah Fawsetts' skills as a student for life of sculptor Umlauf. Most of the sculptors in the Garden were created by Umlauf.
  • Just a bunch of naked modern statues in a poorly landscapes garden. Much better areas to see and pay for in Austin
  • Enjoyed both the museum and garden very much. Staff at the entrance was very informative and friendly
