Blanton Museum of Art
The Blanton Museum of Art is one of the most prominent university art museums in the United States. Founded in 1963, the museum holds the largest public collection in Central Texas, consisting of two building complexes filled with modern and contemporary art, Latin American art, prints and drawings from Europe and more. The museum’s architecture itself is visually appealing, and in 2012, it was voted by the readers of The Austin Chronicle as the best museum in the city. Entry costs $9 for adults and $5 for students; children under 12 go free.
