The Elizabet Ney Museum is the historic home and studio built in 1892 for Elizabet Ney, a world known German sculptor that moved to Austin in 1807 with her Scottish physician husband Edmund Montgomery. A tour of the building is equally valuable to the contents inside. The
history of its prior owner is even better. Elizabet has been described as an early feminist, flamboyant, and unconventional. If only those walls could talk!
