The Blanton Museum at UT is a great experience for all the family. We took our whole family, grandchildren included, for an exhibition of Impressionism in the Caribbean. The museum is ample, lighting is.great and the staff is very helpful.

We always enjoy coming here. The special exhibits are a big draw. The building is peaceful and has a bright lobby. The resident exhibits are fairly limited, but it is a small museum. We have been by an enclosed area that looks to be a teaching area for children. It looks like great fun and should be a benefit for... More

If you are visiting the Bullock, walk across the street and visit the Blanton Museum. The Blanton is not a large museum, but it does host good to see special exhibits. The walls of the atrium are an interesting variegated blue tile that gives one an underwater feeling. There is a large room of modern, structural art that we found... More

I haven't been to other Art Museums, but it was what I expected. Enjoyable and plenty of art to appreciate. It was not an all day experience but rather good for a couple hours enjoyment.

$12 admission $8 parking Two levels of art exhibits. No pictures on level 1. Pictures are allowed on level 2 (no flash allowed). Very nice and well maintained. Beautiful art and friendly staff that will give you the story behind any piece of art. If you have difficulty walking this art museum might not be for you. Large flight of... More

We scheduled this stop for my teenage daughter who loves art. She really enjoyed the it. There some very unique and fun things (outside of the traditional paintings) the rest of us enjoyed as well. We happened to arrive on a day when it was free. That was an extra unplanned bonus.

The Blanton is located across the street from the Bob Bullock Museum so if seeing one it is easy access to the other. Third Thursdays open until 9 PM. Admission is FREE every Thursday. Smaller than most museums so if your time is limited it is easy to see a lot.

We were visiting Austin for a convention and decided to do some sight seeing. The museum is small and we were there bout 2 hours. Spent time in the Caribbean art exhibit enjoying the art. There were a few very interesting pieces. The Grimms brothers exhibit was a little dark for me. Loved the ceramics from the 5th and 6th... More

Well worth a visit to see a wide range of art, mostly of minor artists. My friend and I really enjoyed the modern art galleries--some really thought-provoking pieces there. The temporary exhibit when we went was of Carribean artists, and they chose well. There was a good deal of information about the region and individual artists. I was surprised they... More
