“A Great Museum on the University Campus”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

I greatly enjoyed my visit to the Blanton museum. American museum staff are so enthusiastic and passionate in comparison to the British and Europeans. The museum houses a growing collection of Renaissance painting and Mexican Art. The University Campus also looks great.

“Blanton Museum”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Blanton Museum has a mix off old and modern arts, like paintings, sculptures, and so on,
By some you can even walk in to it!
And expositions change of course now and then,
It's worth to visit this place, i went twice, and on Thursday is't free!

“Languish at leisure”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This is the spot you will want to spend a Sunday afternoon just leisurely taking it all in at your own snail pace. It's one of those places where you eye will behold beauty and you will leave inspired. Great for families, couples or groups. And a wonderful way to cool off during the summer heat! Also, don't miss the gift shop. They sell the most amazing, creative gifts that you won't find anywhere else!

“Nice school museum”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I'm an art history student and was interested to see what UT has in their own museum. It turned out to be a decent place with a nice collection, though I won't call it excellent. They have free-admission day every week, and if you happen to be visiting UT campus and get the time, it's a nice place to go. They also have some temporary exhibitions that worth checking out.
