We've lived in the Austin area 7+ years and put 2 children through UT but it took a Groupon to lure us into the Blanton Museum of Art! We aren't really art aficionados and had planned to breeze through in less than an hour before lunch, but we ended up spending more than 2 hours roaming through the various galleries. Our favorites were "Stacked Waters" which almost overwhelms you when you enter the main lobby and "How to Build Cathedrals" which literally draws you into the exhibit. Both are part of the permanent collection. Parking was easy at the Brazos garage. Definitely worth the trip!

Take your time to read and find hidden things in the paintings.

You can't bring a big bag in so pack light, bring some money for parking

The Blanton validates parking at the Brazos Garage so it only will cost $4.

From Our Editors

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.
