The historic home and studio of Elisabet Ney, a brilliant and wildly iconoclastic German sculptor who moved to Austin in 1882, The Elisabet Ney Museum enthusiastically celebrates her art, her history, and her legacy through exhibitions and events for the whole family. A founding member of the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program, displays include many of her Neoclassical portrait and allegorical works, as well as historic content about her life in Europe, Texas, and elsewhere, and her relentless pursuit of equality for her gender and people generally. The museum enjoys numerous historic designations and is a cornerstone of Austin's Hyde Park National Register Historic Neighborhood. In Ney's memory, the museum also displays exhibitions of contemporary art, largely by Texas women, both inside the building and on its 2.5 acre grounds. A vigorous historic Native American prairie recreation is a part of a completed years-long restoration process. Admission to events and exhibitions is always free.
