    This was a really interesting attraction that had some appeal, but I wasn't able to appreciate it as much as others. The owner was super nice and his dog was cute and cool. The junk he's collected over the years is truly impressive and made for some cool and unique photos. He had some really old laptops, bikes, random toys, tires, glass bottles, etc. It's really artsy, but I can't imagine having all this in my backyard!

    Austin has its own cathedral and, it's weird naturally. Famed local "yardist" Vince Hannemann constructed a three-story, mixed-and-matched "Cathedral of Junk" just outside his home in the local Bouldin Creek neighborhood. It's a Spike Jonze-esque amalgamation, made from an otherworldly collection of more than 60 tons of reclaimed bicycle and auto parts, record players and random oddities, like old microwaves and pairs of crutches, that enchants children and the young at heart alike. Pose for pictures in the cathedral's assorted spaces, like the popular Throne Room, for a uniquely Austin souvenir.

    Remember that huge fort you and your siblings built in the backyard years ago? This is even more amazing than that. Think multi-level maze fort made complete and entirely of the coolest most captivating junk ever. Beware it’s just some guys backyard. So when you pull up to a house in a random neighborhood, if you see junk in the front yard, you’re in the right place. Admission is free, but they accept donations. If you’re as impressed as we were, it’ll be worth donating.
