  • This lovely outdoor sculpture garden is small enough to not consume an entire day and large enough to keep visitors happy for at least an hour. We take grandkids there to explore the gardens and sculp...  more »
  • Very small garden with limited parking. It’s ok but rather the botanical garden because it’s bigger and both have admission fees. 
  • There are so many things to see in Austin by our third trip we got to see some more of the quirky places. We went during the week and there was parking but maybe only 10-12 spots. It is $5 an adult. T...  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!
