The Neill-Cochran House Museum is a treasured part of Austin's history. The historic house was built in 1855 by Abner Cook, the Master Builder who also designed the Texas Governor's Mansion and several other important historic buildings around Austin. The House has survived, largely unchanged, through several tumultuous periods in American History, not only as a residence, but also, at times, as a school, a hospital, and now, a museum and event rental facility. The NCHM is one of the few antebellum historic residences open to the public.

  • This museum is small, but packed with interesting history. Within its walls, it gives a visitor a glimpse of early life in Austin through the stories and possessions of the house's various owners. Though the house itself is well maintained and the exhibits thoughtfully constructed, a lack of explanatory material pertaining to individual items limited my enjoyment of my visit here. Also, the gift shop is EXTREMELY overpriced.
  • This was the perfect place for our son's Rehearsal Dinner! The venue is beautiful, educational and spacious. We were able to rehearse outside, (huge yard, and many different approaches to choose from)and then hold the dinner for 40 inside their amazing museum. Our Event Manager, Andrea Perry, was so wonderful to work with; she is organized, thinks on her feet, (we had a last minute problem with the bartender we hired to cater - she handled it) and was my favorite vendor to work with out of all the companies hired to help with the wedding. Go here! It's affordable, is for a great non-profit cause, and beautiful.
