We’re so proud to launch our very own ART BUS!

Let us take you on a trip through the wonderful world of art in Austin.

What is it?

Since 2018 we’ve hosted ART Bus Tours to invite you to explore the best of Austin’s creative scene.

Now, we’ve purchased our very own 45-foot Touring Coach to run these exciting excursions consistently!

You’ll meet the artists, hear about their process, buy one-of-a-kind art and even learn how to create something yourself. Sip drinks on the bus, listen to good tunes, make new friends and see the best of Austin’s art scene on this behind-the-scenes excursion.


  • We’ll have two tours each day on Saturday and Sunday: 12pm–2:30pm and 3pm–5:30pm
  • Bus pickup will be in the big parking lot near Ground Floor Theater: 979 Springdale Rd #122, Austin, TX 78702
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour
  • Have complimentary drinks while you ride, from our amazing community partners: Guayakí yerba mate, Topo Chico sparkling water and Celzo CBD sparkling water, as well as our friends at Mighty Swell hard seltzer and Independence beer

An Unforgettable Ride

We make it easy! Your tour is guided by the founders of Almost Real Things Magazine, Austin’s go-to guide for art since 2015.
