69. Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum

March 10, 2010

Rest up Austin because we have a big, big weekend and upcoming week or so in store for us! One of the best times to call yourself an Austinite.  That is why today I am suggesting something not requiring too much energy.

This weather reminds me that it is almost Spring in Austin, lucky us!  It is the perfect weather to get outside and enjoy something different.  The Umlauf Sculpture Garden is located across from Zilker Park and features sculptures by 20th Century American sculpture Charles Umlauf and other contemporary sculptures.

***They have internet so feel free to bring your computer to the gardens, relax and enjoy the wireless access.

Each year in April they have the Annual Garden Party – the 12th one will be happening this year on April 22nd. This party has been named by the Austin Chronicle as the “Best Outdoor Fundraiser.” The proceeds from the party help to preserve the garden and the museum’s education programs. The party features live music, dancing, food, wine, and silent auction.

It does cost $3.50 to get in – CASH ONLY!

Hours:
Wednesday-Friday 10:00am – 4:30pm
Saturday – Sunday 1:00 – 4:30

Location:
605 Robert E. Lee Road
Austin, Texas 78704

    Thanks so much for your list of things to do in Austin! You’ve given us a lot of great entries so far, and since you’ve posted a Suggestion Box…I have a few suggestions for your list:

    Mayfield Park and its peacocks are definitely an Austin experience Be sure to go left from the entrance and through the garden gate to find the peacocks, koi pond, and flowerbeds (I can send pics.) While there, visit Laguna Gloria down the road. It’s the original home of the Austin Museum of Art, and one of the prettiest places in Austin.

    For a taste of Austin ambiance, try Frank & Angie’s Pizza (behind Hut’s Hamburgers); Magnolia Cafe on South Congress; Matt’s Famous El Rancho on South Lamar; East Side Cafe on Manor Rd; and The Salt Lick BBQ.

    Thanks again!
