Very beautiful area, though could be a little bigger. Highly recommend.

My family and I were visiting from Houston and stumbled on this interesting looking garden. I was waved into the building by a young Indian lady at the front desk only to feel a cold, sort of, welcome. She was one of the snootiest people I have ever encountered. It took everything in me to not laugh at her pretentiousness. Looking at someone’s kids as if they’re parasites is not a good look. She was too busy worried about what my kids were doing than explaining what was offered. She spoke with this voice and tone that was unnatural and just plain annoying. Due to that unfortunate encounter, we were indefinitely uninterested.

It is super affordable and not overly crowded. The garden is loaded with sculptures from both Umlauf but also visiting artists have work there as well. Plus I got engaged there so what's not to love!

Lovely little hidden gem in the shadow of downtown Austin! I had no idea it existed, nor the story behind the man behind the place. Excellent for meditation, reading, relaxing, escaping the chaos for a bit. The curator and docents are all kind, knowledgeable and wow approachable. I'll be back, frequently! ♡

Whenever I visit Austin, I try to find at least one new thing to do that I haven't done yet. This time, it was visiting the Texas Selfie Museum! 📸 If you love taking photos and showing them off on social media, this is the place for you. Lots of pretty and unique photo installations ready for you. 🍩🍦🪞📚 There are plenty of ring lights so you don't have to worry about not having enough light. (The only installation that is dark, on purpose, is the tiny mirror room with the white orbs.) This place has 2 floors so don't forget to go up the stairs! Both floors have restrooms so you can make sure to wash your hands after using the props! I wish they had more hand sanitizer stations but washing your hands with soap is better anyways. 😉 They also have some Selfie Museum merch if you want to purchase any after your photo-taking.

My dad studied under Umlauf in the 1960's. Seeing this with my dad gave me a different perspective. I love the animal sculptures the most. The garden was overflowing with greenery and is very organic. The landscape architecture is a wonderful compliment to the sculptures. And we even saw wildlife - 4 armadillos eating in the wooded area just off the path. Bring your bug spray! We got bitten a lot and that was why we didn't stay longer. Parking is an issue here. Allow extra time and be prepared to walk. Paths were well defined and it seems most of this garden is accessible for wheels. Crushed granite mostly and some cement and brick substrates. It was a must see on our trip. We really liked the staff too. Don't miss it! Restrooms were clean and easy to get to. One of the highlights of our trip. Beautiful and inspiring display of sculpture. Make time to do this!
