It would have been a great car tour for us but my Texas son's car over-heated! A lot of stop and go! His car had been repaired because earlier that year, he had hit a deer! Benini has a great eye for sculpture. I saw in the article that they might have moved by now. Benini even talks to visitors... More

You drive around the ranch looking at all the sculptures. This is an unusual and interesting way to view art. The setting is the hill country in Texas which I love. I highly recommnend going to the ranch and visiting the gallery.

So suggested by friends to go visit this ranch and so much to see. You will spend time taking a slow drive around the ranch to see all the sculptures and to the building for indoor sculptures. the Art is free for viewing, we even tried to make a donation and turned down. Don't pass up the unique art at... More

Another person who had just never bothered to check this place out...my mistake, soon to be remedied because I know I'm going to be back every chance I get! The ranch is full of amazing giant outdoor sculptures ---- some a wonder, some wonderful, some wonderfully huge, all just a wonder that they found such a great home in one... More

I have lived in Texas for 24 years. Apparently, this amazing place has been here for 14 years. I can't believe it took us this long to find it. You simply must go. Even if you just want an interesting hike and could care less about art....this is a great place. And if you do like art, WOW. There is... More

If you like Art, you will enjoy this place. Kind of out of the way but worth the trip. Great stuff in the gallery and lots of sculptures along the drive thru. As the gallery is up for sale you have to call ahead to tour.

My son encouraged me to call the number on the gate. I called, a woman answered, who I assume was the gracious, Lorraine, I told her we cam a long way... More

We were driving back to Austin from Fredericksburg and stopped just west of Johnson City to take a picture of a wonderful chrome & steel Longhorn sculpture on the side of the road. We saw a sign for the Sculpture Ranch 5.2 miles. What's a Sculpture Ranch? Let's go see! The drive through the hill country was beautiful with wild... More

We were driving back from Fredericksburg and my wife saw a metal bull sculpture by the highway. She wanted a picture so we turned around and went back. While taking a photo we saw a sign for the Benini Sculpture Ranch. It is open the first weekend of each month until 6PM. It was 5:30 but we wanted to see... More
