  • 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.  more »
  • Elizabeth Net Museum is worth a visit. This tribute to a unique artist. Still under restoration, it is well a visit. While there review Elizabet’s life. Not my go to museum but worth a visit.  more »
  • This studio museum was amazing to explore. Love Elisabet Ney and her husband's history. The studio she designed was equally impressive. Her clay sculptures were beautiful, including the last piece she had worked on before she died, Prometheus! This place is a must for anyone visiting Austin. Architecture was incredibly designed and built by her, totally functional and resembled a small castle.
  • My daughter and I visited Elisabet Ney Museum on our mother daughter weekend. I grew up in Austin and went to UT but never to this museum. We really enjoyed the sculptures, and learning about Elizabeth Ney. There's a nice walk down to the creek behind the museum. If you enjoy Texas history and art this is a must stop location and Austin. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and welcomed us warmly and answered all of our questions. I plan on coming back.
