I've been going to this museum for many years. They have a fantastic new building and a great way to explain a slice of Texas' history after the Alamo.

The house itself is befitting as art itself. The curator gave us such wonderful info on the house and McNay history. We were blown away with the house and the art within the museum as well.

Visited the McNay during a renovation period. It offers magnificent art, particularly Monet's Nympheas, Renoir, Cezanne, Manet, and sculptures and prints by Picasso, among others. The displays offer an intimate way to examine these Masters. Some pieces, such as by Pissarro, inexplicably, were not displayed....More
