As art museums go this one is nice. Some I don’t understand, some I think are only for the artsy - fartsy folk. This one is down to earth from a normal woman who was very generous. Wood working was a plus for me

I rather arrived at the McNay by default because it was at the end of the route of a bus I was on. I enjoyed looking at the art on display but for me it was over shadowed by the building itself. I was wowed...More

The ground alone make the visit a great experience. The blend of the historic house and modern additions create a wonderful series of textures and aesthetics. The sculpture and fountains are elegant. The collection may not be deep, but there are many, many wonderful works!

This museum had everything you could hope for. First, the main part of the museum is in an old traditional Spanish style mansion and the grounds were beautiful. It has some Renoir, Picasso, Mattise, and Van Gogh paintings. The sculptures included modern art but also...More

I went to the McNay to see a special exhibit of African American art and was so impressed I bought the book. I used to go the Mcnay on a regular basis and need to start doing so again. This is a wonderful museum.

The McNay is a beautiful space with a surprising collection. I really enjoyed my visit. It was really noisy in the entrance and in the first few exhibit halls — there were two school groups, and another group of young adults accompanied by a docent...More

Imagine a 23-acre property with gardens, sculpture, and trails--that alone is worth the time to find this impressive museum, much of which is housed in a gracious Spanish Colonial Revival home. Modern additions are impressive for displaying larger pieces and housing the research library. Staff...More

I was surprised by the number of pieces by the really great artists. Monet, Van Gogh, Rodin, Manet, etc, along with newer American artists. Too many to mention.

If you enjoy beautiful homes and grounds and art, this is a place not to be missed. Don’t expect a major art museum like you will find in Houston, Dallas, or Fort Worth. But there is plenty of art to admire, but with the added...More

It’s around $20 for Adults and $15 for active duty military.My suggestion is to visit during free events and free general admission days! It’s not really worth the $20 entrance fees.
