  • Beautiful spot for a wedding! Enjoyed the event and a stroll through the sculpture garden. It is a peaceful and natural space among the trees, and the rolls up and down through the sculptures.  more »
  • A beautiful place for a short stroll in any season. Accessible trail. Nice restrooms. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.  more »
  • Umlauf created sculpture and drawings about Farah Fawcett who was his student. Sculptures in natural setting. Visit takes less than an hour.  more »

  • Unless you're really, really into the works of Charles Umlauf, this museum isn't worth your time. The gardens were pretty nice, but it's a small park filled with some rather boring sculptures, every single one by the same artist. Im not an art fanatic, and a few statues were pretty intriguing, but the remaining ~20 were pretty much the same uninspired template. The small museum about Umlauf and his creative process was also some what interesting. But again, unless you're really, really into Umlauf or Catholic themed bronze sculptures, don't waste your time
  • Peaceful garden right by Zilker Park where you can escape from the city.
  • i liked 2 or 3 sculptures, but most were pretty uninspired and ordinary. It was also surprisingly small. A waste of time, don't bother going
  • Small yet very worth it. They keep odd hours so check when they are open before heading out. It's a lovely display of Umlauf's work.
  • Beautiful sculptures, beautiful plants, beautiful place. Fun for a midday stroll and centrally located. It's easy to forget that this place is across the street from Barton Springs!
