Best things to do in Austin

History Museum
“The Bullock Texas State History Museum tells the state's story through a variety of interesting interactive exhibits, along with audio-visual displays and film. The museum's IMAX theater shows educational and popular new-release films. The permanent Story of Texas exhibit is home to artifacts and displays that feature defining events in the state's history, like the preserved hull of the 17th-century La Belle, which was shipwrecked at the mouth of the Mississippi River. Other exhibits and presentations include the fall of the Alamo, Tejano culture, and the history of the Texas oil industry. The museum also hosts many special events throughout the year, including children's activities and public presentations.”

Located in the Zilker Metropolitan Park, the outdoor sculptures are on display among the trees, gardens, and ponds that surround the museum. Inside, visitors can see more of Umlauf's work in addition to exhibits about the artist's life and displays of personal artifacts and mementos. The museum also features temporary exhibits of other artists' work and hosts events such as concerts, workshops, and even yoga classes among the sculptures outside. Guided tours are available.”

“This is my son's favorite place in Austin. It's super weird, and you have to call the guy in advance to arrange to visit (although there will be lots of people there). Kids can explore the enormous sculpture made of cast-off stuff to their hearts content.”

“Representing one of the city's largest cultural influences and populations, the Mexic-Arte Museum showcases traditional and contemporary Mexican, Latino, and Latin American art and culture. Founded in 1983, the museum features rotating exhibits, many of which are thought-provoking statements about current issues, like immigration, border control, and acceptance of Mexican culture in Texas. There are numerous installations and topic-focused galleries that include the artwork or sculptures of one or more artists, and several that are collections of photography, painting, and multimedia work that represent populations within the culture. The museum also hosts free "family days" several times a year, when the public can participate in hands-on activities that help visitors get a deeper understanding of the artists' work.”
