  • This is a very serene and beautiful garden. It was a delight to see all the sculptures while strolling outside in perfect weather. 
  • This is a must-see and you can spend as long or as little amount of time. I had never heard of Charles Umlauf until today. He was a German immigrant who came to the USA; based on his sculptures UT off...  read more »
  • This is a great place to spend an hour or so communing with nature and being inspired by art, right in the heart of Austin. One exhibit in the museum explains how bronze sculptures are made by the wax...  read 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
  • 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
  • A really unique and contrasting spot compared to the rest of Austin. Very mellow and the go-at-your-own-pace was preferred. Loved the personal pieces of mother and child, Madonna and son, but confused by the entry of animals to the otherwise human and religious themed park.
  • Just to clear, this park has the sculptures of one artist, Umlauf. They were good sculptures, some really good, but I was expecting more. The presentation is nice, lovely grounds and plantings. There was an excellent presentation of his studio and how his sculptures were made. But the suggested donation of $5 a person was steep.
  • 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.
