We especially enjoyed the interpreter who told us all about the germans that came to claim their land in the hill country. Very good exhibits, good flow throughout.

The spiraling display of Texan history was comprehensive, but I found myself wishing that there were more information and exhibits about contemporary Austin and Texas. The current art exhibit was good though...

We were lucky enough to meet a docent who was going to do a tour but we were the only people on it. Linda was absolutely brilliant. Full of knowledge and easy to talk with. She made for a great visit to an interesting museum.
