A beautiful green space and well maintained. Not being from Texas we were not familiar with Charles Umlauf’s work. It’s all stunning and some are very powerful pieces. He’s well known for successfully sculpting two people together which is, as I understand, extremely tricky to...More

Although the video could definitely use updating, the experience was wonderful. The sculptures were clearly labeled and the brochure explaining them was excellent! The atmosphere was so peaceful and so enjoyable to spend time here.

Very nice place to view works of art set among nature. Literature available to tell you about each piece of art. It is a nice way to spend an afternoon.

My daughter planned her wedding here in September 2017. It turned out beautiful. I enjoyed the beautiful location and the staff were pleasant to deal with. I recommend for a small wedding party.

American sculptor, Charles Umlauf. A beautiful garden with his sculptures placed around. Not large or fancy, but everyone who has gone there with me has been quite pleased. The museum is small and had a Farrah Fawcett exhibit which was very nice.

We were glad we stopped and waited for parking. The garden even in the winter is nice and established with a water fall and much more to see. The muesum and film are worth visiting inside.

There are other places in Austin that might welcome such services, though. The Butterfly Garden and the Zilker Rose Garden, for ex.
