Well preserved home and studio of the artist who created some of our most important sculptures. Museum is small and most Austinites have never visited but certainly a rewarding place to visit.

One of my favorite museums in Austin. Great sculptures by Ms Ney. From Mad King Ludwig to Stephen F Austin and Jesus. Also other exhibits and a look at the history and life of her and her family. Oldest museum in Austin too. Great outside walking area and a park across a bridge with tennis and areas to picnic
Such a pretty building with so much history! I have been to the state Capitol many many times but after visiting this museum I found out that the statues of Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin we’re done by Elisabet Ney! It was really amazing to see her multiple attempts before she did the final product that was in the Capitol it’s self! There were so many other statues that you could read about and you could go all the way to the top of the building into her work/ private room! The trials behind the building were just as cute with the bridge over the creek! I would recommend going here before the state Capitol!
