There are only 5 Guttenberg Bibles in the United States and who knew one was in Austin, Texas? Cool to see. Also on display is the first photograph ever.
Strange exhibit of pictures from southern California. Lots of gas stations and swimming pools. Didn't understand...More
Another visit to this centre for a exciting and well presented exhibition.
Having visited Austin over a number of years and we have always been impressed by the exhibitions put on by them.
The current vaudeville exhibits are compelling being from the other side of...More
The Ransom Center is really a forum for special exhibits, and, from our perspective, the extensive archives most likely provide a constant flow of cool stuff. I mean, where else can you see a Gutenberg Bible, a Freda Kahlo self-portrait, and the world’s oldest photograph…….and...More
If you are close to UTA - this is a must-see place. I was here with some former UTA students and I was amazed by this hidden gem. This Center has the Gutenberg Bible and the first photograph displayed right close to the entrance. At...More
Brought out of town visitors here to see the Gutenberg Bible. They also had an exhibit on playwright Terrence McNally that was fascinating. Tucked away, down a side hallway, was an original self-portrait of Frida Kahlo! Bonus!
Parking is difficult but well worth the effort.
Guttenberg Bible, first photograph and free private tour all mixed together. We anticipated a quick stop to see the bible and got so much more. We hit it at a quiet time and had a docent all to our selves for a tour that included...More

So my girlfriend and I are headed to Austin tomorrow and heading back on Monday. We're staying at the Red Roof Inn off I-35, and looking to do as much as possible during our stay. For that reason, I'm pretty sure we'll need a car... at least to do anything that isn't in the heart of the city. I've put together a list of some touristy ideas... Mount Bonnell, Barton Springs, Baylor Street Art Wall, Zilker Park, Congress Bridge Bats, SoCo Ave, 6th St, Mohawk, UT, Capital Building, Harry Ransom...More

I assume you are staying at Red Roof Plus. We were just there and pleasantly surprised esp since the rates were very reasonable. You NEED a car. We got one pretty cheap online. Well worth it. Unless you are staying right in the city, you really need a car as Austin is spread out. Just my opinion.
