    This is a manageable size of museum. We focused on the special exhibitions and the American art; we have seen more than enough European and religious art. Be sure to visit the Ellsworth Kelly building on site. They also have a very nice gift shop. There is parking at the Brazos garage across the street.

    The best outdoor mall/shopping experience of any place in Texas. Mixed retail and lofts. So jealous of those who live here. Has almost everything you could want or need. Fantastic restaurants all around the complex.

    Where else can you read Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's notes, interviews and manuscripts relating to the Watergate scandal, see the sunglasses that Gloria Swanson wore in the 1950 movie Sunset Boulevard, view one of only 21 complete copies known to exist of the Gutenberg Bible, marvel at the first successful permanent photograph from nature taken in 1826 and examine selected costumes, script drafts, storyboards and audition media from David O. Selznick's Gone With The Wind collection? It's all here--and much more--in the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Located at 300 West 21st Street, on the UT Austin campus, it is an internationally known humanities research center, an archive, library and museum that specializes in the collection of literary and cultural artifact from the Americas and Europe for the purpose of advancing the study of the arts and humanities. Established in 1957, it is open from 10 to 5 Tuesday through Friday and noon to 5 on Saturday and Sunday. It houses five million literary manuscripts, one million rare books, five million photographs and more than 100,000 works of art. Other extraordinary holdings on display include Albert Einstein's unpublished notes and calculations for his work on general relativity, three copies of William Shakespeare's 1623 First Folio plays, one of only 23 copiesw known to exist of a suppressed 1865 first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the papers of Robert De Niro, David O. Selznick and Gloria Swanson, unused props designed by Salvador Dali to have been used in the dream sequence of the 1945 film Spellbound, a complete set of Pablo Picasso's 1930-1937 Vollard Suite, Edgar Allan Poe's writing desk, John Wilkes Booth's personal production promptbook for Richard III, David Garrick's diary from his 1751 trip to Paris, which once belonged to Harry Houdini, a writing journal kept by Jack Kerouac in preparation for writing his classic On the Road in 1957 and the love letters of the ill-fated Mexican Emperor Maximilian I and his wife Carlota. All that's missing is a letter from Julius Caesar to Cleopatra.

    Waited at the visitor center to hop on our bus tour and we had a great time walking around looking at all of the neat things for sale. The ladies at the desk were super friendly and very helpful and seemed to love being there and chatting with everyone :)

    I was thrilled to find a beautiful glass earrings and necklace. Very reasonably priced and would have been 2-3x in downtown boutiques. All the employees volunteer their time to show their work. They were so nice. Nice crafts at fair prices.It was the only place that I bought things during my stay. a block away from the capital.

    The Arboretum is an easy place to get what you want. I am not a shopper so their easy access to what I want is appreciated. There is shopping, restaurants of all types and places to just enjoy.
    I visit The Arboretum often.

    We've visiting this cool art space a few times already. The space is beautiful and has brought a lot to the community already. Unique artists with incredible talent! Can't wait to see the next showing.

    If you Google "Weird things to do in Austin"(or something like that), Uncommon Objects will likely come up.

    If you've never been inside an antique store, this place will be novel and exciting.

    If you're a geeky weirdo like me who has been to many a antique store in America, small and large, this place is still relatively fun but not thrilling and not the best use if your time if have limited vacation time in Austin.

    If dead animals creep you out, such as dead mice heads glued onto toy dolls and holiday cards, then you might want to avoid this place.

    Friendly and welcoming staff! Amurr'ca!

    In general, we found this to be a very nice shopping center, with both traditional stores and a selection of more unique places. Some good restaurants as well as a movie theater. But the mall was under some kind of restoration so areas were inaccessible and many places did not look very nice right now.

    I would highly recommend taking some time on a Sunday morning to visit the farmers market. Everyone here is super nice, there are tons of friendly dogs, and everyone wants to have a good time. All the stuff I've gotten from is great and/or delicious and I love going there when I have the chance.
