Sculptor Elisabeth Ney spent the last years of her life working in this building, which still contains some of her most beautiful sculpted pieces.

We visited the Elisabet Ney museum because we were curious as to who she was. Although the story of the artist is told, the house is virtually empty. You can read what she did in each room, but without the props it's hard to imagine...More

This small museum of the Artist's workspace is both off-beat, and off the beaten path. It gives one an idea of what the Austin of 100+ years ago was like, and offers some of the artists' works for enjoyment, with information on her life &...More

As long as I live in this city, I am amazed this place is still standing in the same crumbling condition it was 10 years ago when I first looked inside.

Wonderful (empty) place to go. One area was not easily accessible but didn't detract from home. If you been to DC or TX Capital, you've seen the work of Elisabet Ney. Progressive sculptress who left a beautiful mark here in Austin. The grounds are kept...More
