There is a pottery place where you can sign up to learn how to make your own pottery. Especially in the spring this is a place worth visiting.

“OK to visit, not much to see in the house”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

I visited Laguna Gloria w/ the intent of seeing the architecture of the old home, built 1916. The home is kept in beautiful condition, but there was not a lot of it to see. No furnishings and very few rooms to see. The grounds were nice to walk around, but not beautiful in January as nothing was in bloom. I did enjoy reading the history of the homeowner, Clara Driscoll, and about her contributions to the state of Texas.
