Fodor's Review

Set on a lush Lake Austin peninsula, this 1915 Mediterranean-style villa was once home to Clara Driscoll Sevier, who led the fight to save the Alamo from demolition in the early 20th century. In this lovely if relatively diminutive setting, the museum showcases its expanding collection of 20th-century American paintings, sculpture, and photographs, and hosts outside exhibits and family-focused art programs. An art school shares the idyllic setting of this building, which

is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Staffers are extremely helpful and informative.
