GUIDED TOURS

Dive deeper into the life and work of Charles Umlauf with a docent-led tour of the museum and garden! 

The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum uses its collection of more than 200 sculptures, paintings, and drawings by 20th century American sculptor Charles Umlauf as a teaching tool to encourage the understanding and appreciation of sculpture. We offer many opportunities for all to enjoy the plentiful riches in the Garden.

Admission to the UMLAUF includes a self-guided sculpture tour, and docent-led tours take place the third Saturday of every month.

Unable to make it to the Garden in person? Take a virtual tour of the garden below!

SCHOOL TOURS

The UMLAUF provides guided tours to public, private, and independent schools, serving 4,000 AISD students annually. We also provide free tours and admission to all Austin public school groups, as well as transportation assistance through bus reimbursements to Austin Independent School District. School groups located outside AISD may inquire for information regarding admission fee waivers. Please schedule your tour at least three weeks in advance. 

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS

Thanks to a conservation process that involves regular washing and waxing, ​the UMLAUF houses the largest collection of touchable bronze sculptures in Texas. Our Touch Tours offer unique opportunities for the visually impaired and other kinesthetic learners to formally engage with the subject matter and materials employed by Charles Umlauf.

The UMLAUF orientation video is available with captions for the hearing impaired.

The UMLAUF provides sculpture guides and docent-led tours for Spanish-speaking visitors.
