If you want to go to a place that captures the absolute essence of the Austinite Motto of "Keep Austin Weird", then this is it! It's actually the backyard of a house in an older neighborhood of A-Town, so use your GPS! Where as it used to be "make a donation when you get there" and "enter at your leisure... 更多
No your google maps didn't lead you to the wrong place. It can easily be passed up since its in a neighborhood and it's not obvious that there is a cathedral of junk. What is obvious is the sign as you walk up that states "by appointment only". Didn't get to see the junk but from I did see through... 更多
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.

This was a cool and very unique experience. It is a bit out of the way, but cool to see what different people enjoy doing. When you go, you'll get more out of it if you really think about all it takes to build something like this
This guy has had some unfortunate and serious pressure put on him by disgruntled neighbors to not park on his street or anywhere but St. Elmo (which is a busy street), so if you have littles, drop them off with an adult and then park. That being said, once you're in, this place is fantastic! Definitely an Austin Bucket List... 更多
Just a big old pile of junk in someones back yard....you can't just walk in as it is private property in residential neighborhood....drive by
