Activity Overview

The Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum situates the gorgeous bronze sculptures of Charles Umlauf amid the lush gardens of Barton Springs in Austin, Texas. The statues were donated to the city by Umlauf himself, and his wife Angeline took on the responsibility of planting the garden with native Texas flowers. The waterfall and a bubbling stream cover up the noise of the nearby city traffic, turning the Garden into a serene and artistic oasis.

Things to Do

  • Guided Garden Tours - hour-long tours for families, field trips, and large groups
  • Sculpture Safari - a scavenger hunt through the garden with different maps for different age groups
  • Craft Workshops - changing art classes with free, local beer tastings; workshops range from screen printing to macrame
  • Family Day - once a month there will be storytime in the garden, live sculpture demonstrations, and family fun activities
  • The Garden is used by the city as a public space. Everything from film sets, beer tastings, yoga classes, and laser art shows are set in the gardens, and there are many art classes offered for children and adults.
  • The interchangeable exhibitions are set up both indoor and outdoor, giving you and your family the chance to experience the outdoor art of Charles Umlauf alongside local Texas artists.

Umlauf Sculpture Garden Insider Tips

The Umlauf Sculpture Garden is a place for art and nature enthusiasts. It is a small, intimate venue with only 20-30 statues. If you are looking for a larger art display, consider visiting Austin's many art galleries and museums instead or combined with a visit to the Garden.

Although dogs are allowed most places in Austin, TX, no animals are allowed in the Sculpture Garden.
