Blanton Museum of Art

When Archer M. Huntington donated 4,000 acres of land to The University of Texas at Austin, it was no surprise that the husband to renowned sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington stipulated it be used to support an art museum. Today, Blanton Museum of Art—named Best Museum in the Austin Chronicle's 2013 Best of Austin Readers' Poll—honors Archer's request by providing access to more than 17,000 works and a variety of rotating exhibitions. The museum's collection of prints, paintings, and sculptures comprises more than 4,000 pieces from America and 1,800 from Latin America, and it even includes the Suida-Manning Collection—a group of 230 paintings and 400 drawings by Baroque and Renaissance masters that was much sought after by other museums, according to Frommer's. With these pieces as backdrop, the museum hosts Third Thursday events such as artist talks and Yoga in the Galleries, the latter of which finds instructors twisting sculptures into poses that will be easier on their spines.

    “We really enjoyed our visit to the Blanton; the exhibits are beautifully laid out in themed areas, and the museum itself is architecturally stunning, from the shimmery blue tiles decorating the atrium to the views from the light-filled corner rooms on the 2nd floor. As a cat-lover, I particularly enjoyed the special "In the Company of Cats & Dogs" exhibition; and I appreciated the wide range of art, from the old masters to contemporary artists. I wish I had known the state lot across from the museum offers free parking on the weekends; I could have saved the $8 I paid to park at the nearby Bob Bullock Museum.”

  • “Recommend the tour, focuses on a different theme each time, very educational”
