This museum house a stunning collection of Sorolla murals. And the small park across the street has wonderful small sculptures created by children (?). A great visit for art lovers.

Even though the Hispanic Society is not a large museum, it's collection still packs a punch. It is easy to get lost in a city filled with excellent museums but this little gem is on a small college campus on 155th Street uptown and you really have to look for it plus the hours and days are limited so be sure to check when it is open. Look to the back room for the various scenes of Spain and look at the new work, "The four faces of the Soul". It is a an eye opener. The best part is that the museum is free and there is a decent bathroom.

Great collection of Spanish (and some Latin American) art, particularly paintings. Think Velasquez, Goya, El Grecco, Sorolla.. Summer 2016, Goya's portrait of the Duchess of Alba is visiting The Prado, but there are plenty of masterpieces to view. Museum will CLOSE at end of year for RENOVATIONS, so catch it while you can. Note ventilation on a hot day is poor, definitely need renovation. No entrance fee currently.

This museum is a well kept secret. It is worth the trip to see it. An incredible collection of art from the Hispanic world in a beautiful building. Famous and less famous artists displayed together. A very good library of materials interest to scholars of Hispanic culture. An added bonus it's free!

Not a huge collection (and the touted Goyas are not terribly impressive). But the main exhibition hall is a lovely setting, admission is free, and it's only a one block walk to 157th Street subway. Worth dropping into on your way to/from the Cloisters at the far end of Manhattan island.
