Moved here in 2006 from Dallas. Since that time, Dallas has improved their museums 200%. San Antonio is doing a great job of improving the offers in Art and culture. Houston still reigns supreme. Come on Austin, grow up!!! It's time to get knowledgeable people in place. The Domain is NOT an art exhibit.

My wife & I visited The Blanton while we were in Austin on vacation. The facility was undergoing major renovations in January 2017, so their permanent exhibit spaces were closed. But that inconvenience came with no-charge access (beyond a reasonable $4 campus garage parking fee) to the two temporary exhibitions we had come to see. Both the "Xu Bing: Book... More

This exhibit was amazing, the cost to see two exhibitions was high considering the rest of the museum was closed, i guess it helps the school but there should be a break because of the closure..

We were not sure what to find here, but were told it was the best art museum in Austin. It was. And we were reminded that the wealth of the state of Texas allowed for significant collections to be amassed. The museum had a wide range of artwork. The day we went, I saw the Andy Warhol portrait of Farah... More

My husband and I were in the area and visited the Bullock museum and UTA campus. Since we had already paid for parking, we decided to pay a quick visit. The museum fee was reasonable after a senior discount. It appeared that it was under renovation but they had great exhibits with 2 different genres of artistry, Warhol and Xu... More

It's true that part of the museum is closed for renovations but for us, the Andy Warhol exhibit alone was worth it and what we had time for. I learned so much about this famous 'pop' artist' and realized his genius for how he saw the worth and expressed it in art, much more than his soup can art. This... More

I was very sad when I stopped in from the remediation, of a tour, hop-on-hop-off bus to find that most of the museum was closed. There were 2 exhibits open, one was Andy Warhol. I was going to see that one the rest of the museum, but at $10 per person, and most of it closed, I passed. They told... More

Pleasantly surprised to have gotten in for free an hour before closing. World class exhibits in one of the South's finer cities.

While visiting my mother in Austin, we experienced lots of great things. This museum was our least favorite experience. My son had never been to an art museum so we wanted to have that experience. My mother had gone ahead to pay for my sister, my children (12 and 14), and I. They did inform her that the upstairs area... More
