Elisabet Ney Museum

Elisabet Ney Museum

Welcome to the famed home of Elisabet Ney, the German sculptor who fled Europe's anti-intellectual movement and found artistic refuge here in Austin.  This museum, sitting on 3 acres of gorgeous prairie land, is housed in Ney's former studio and home, Elisabet living here from the 1850's to her death in 1907. The entire museum is now dedicated to showcasing her life and works, with guided tours available that will show you all around the home and fill you in on all the important info.

See the Reception Room, Studio, Parlor, and Tower before you head outside and marvel at the gorgeous neoclassical architecture. The building itself serves as the cornerstone of the Hyde Park National Registered Historic Neighborhood, being quite the popular historic and cultural location here in Austin for both locals and tourists.

Not only will you get the chance to tour the home as mentioned before, but you will also get a good overview of what is considered to be the world's largest collection of Ney's work during your visit, as well as various works from other contemporary artists. Scattered about the home in between the original furnishings and era ephemera will be bits and pieces of essential STEAM curriculum info, so if your group would like to set up an extra educational visit be sure to let us know and we will customize your experience (pre-k to HS).
