The Cathedral of Junk is a must see. It doesn't seem so large when you first walk up, but the structure is actually quite massive. Its very impressive, and the longer you look the more oddities you find in the "junk". A 10$ donation is encouraged and visitors must call ahead if they wish to see it.
We took our grandkids to see this eclectic mix of junk and art and they loved it. This man's entire back yard is a cathedral of junk, put together in an interesting and adventurous way. Was recently told that you have to make an appointment now due to the high volume of traffic. Be sure to look it up and... 更多
It's so cool! Definitely Austin style. Weird and wonderful You have to call and speak to him to get an appointment. The man who built it in his back yard. He is super sweet and helpful. We called and got our appointment the same day.
Make sure you call ahead and make an appointment to visit. It is a suggested $10 donation to see. Definitely interesting and quirky. If you are looking as to why the saying goes, "Keep Austin Weird", definitely visit this attraction. Dude who make it is super cool and friendly.

A little out of the way but it's worth a walk around and checking out! You have to call ahead and reserve a time to come visit to ensure the owner is home, they charge a $10 donation per group. This spot highlights Austin creativity.
It's a bit out of the center but you should make the effort to see it. A decades long labor of love, it's fascinating. Literally everyone visiting while we were there sooner or later says "I used to have one of those". I know we did. There are no regular hours so call ahead. Park on St Elmo, not Lereina.
