The museum offers free guided tours Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
Inside Out Museum – March
Occurring during SXSW, this free multi-day event brings music, art, and camaraderie to the front yard of the museum.
Pun-Off World Championships – May
This free, quirky wordplay competition is the highest celebration of the lowest form of humor. Enjoy a laugh watching punsters from around the world compete in Punniest of Show, in which contestants recite 90-second pun-laden monologues, and Punslingers, in which contestants trade puns on a single topic until one is left speechless.
Austin Museum Day – September
Each fall, the museum hosts special programming during Austin Museum Day, a free citywide event celebrating the offerings of our cultural institutions.
Fans of O. Henry who want to take their admiration to another level are welcome to attend these free readings and discussions of the author’s short stories, held at the museum, at 1p.m., unless otherwise noted.
