Elisabet Ney Museum


The Elisabet Ney Museum is the historic Austin, Texas studio of European-born portrait sculptor Elisabet Ney (1833-1907). See portraits from life by Ney of 19th-century European intellectuals, statesmen and kings as well as Texas heroes, together with photographs and memorabilia of Elisabet Ney.

The former studio, including its 2.5 acres, was designed by Elisabet Ney. The former studio is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a member of Historic Artists Homes and Studios, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Posts marked with #Edmundstypewriter are posts that were left (usually anonymously) on the IBM Selectric III that we’ve placed in the tower room, designed to be Elisabet’s husband Edmund’s study. The best pieces are taken and posted (anonymously) on Twitter (@ElisabetNeyATX) and FB. The notion is that inspired thoughts should be shared generously, much as Elisabet and Edmund did all their lives.

The Elisabet Ney Museum is a property of the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department.
