Best Museum

Blanton Museum of Art

The best part of being a student at UT is the free entry into one of the largest university art museums in the country. Before you even get to the featured artwork, a beautiful staircase surrounded by walls of gradient, sparkling blue tile greets you – itself a work of art, Stacked Waters by Teresita Fernandez – inspiring awe. The permanent collection of art is profound and unforgettable, but leaves art lovers yearning to come back for another look. Thoughtful and diverse, fancy and fun, the Blanton is a place to learn, to look, to love, and it just keeps on getting better.
