South Austin Museum of Popular Culture


South Austin Museum of Popular Culture

The South Austin Museum of Popular Culture (SAMOPC) is a Texas 501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation dedicated to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting art and memorabilia that reflect Austin's eclectic contributions to popular culture worldwide.

SAMOPC champions Austin artists who were mainly responsible for "weird" Austin. The museum is the subject of many articles in the Austin Chronicle, who in 2004 distinguished the museum as the "Best Place to Art Trip."

The New York Times included SAMOPC in a Frugal Traveler [http://video.on.nytimes.com/?fr_story=bd103312cf0c1e1bb338dceb18a3d938205da4a4 video] from July 11, 2007.
