Mcnay Art Museum - Review

Marion Koogler McNay bequeathed the state her mansion, her art collection and most of her fortune in the creation of this museum. It’s one of the best collection of fine arts in Texas – possessing over 14,000 items of art and sculpture including the works of Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, Diego Rivera, Mary Cassatt, and Edward Hopper. In addition to that it possesses collections of Egyptian Mummies, Roman Coins and a costume collection.

The Museum has undergone various expansions since McNay’s death and also hosts the Tobin Collection of Theater Arts. The building itself does not lack for beauty, it’s Spanish Colonial Revival, adds rest on a beautifully landscaped grounds filled with fountains, a Japanese Garden and a fish pond. Texans are usually surprised to discover the place, and often walk away quoting “it’s a gem.”

McNay Art Museum, San Antonio Reviews

  • Saw the Immersed exhibit twice and each time a wonderful experience. (Stop by before it's gone, Sept 2nd). The rest of the McNay museum has a wonderful range of artwork from Medieval and Renaissance to Modern and Contemporary. It's a wonderful place to visit, along with the gorgeous grounds surrounding the museum. Bring a picnic lunch; check the grounds/picnicking guidelines before you do.

  • The HEB sponsored free-after-4pm program they have on Thursday(?) Was great. McNay has beautiful grounds, a Mexican villa inspired building, and some of the most precious art from the most famous artists. However, I believe there should be a briefing before you enter the galleries or clear signage that expresses "remain 12 inches away from art at all times, save the interactive exhibits" with a big sign indicating which are interactive pieces. It seemed unnecessarily confusing and just gave the staff a reason to patronize museum goers who had no idea of the rules. As soon as you're 11.5" away you will likely be scolded and honestly, no adult wants to be scolded especially for unintentionally doing something they weren't supposed to...that's a problem that could be so easily remedied.

  • I went on a HEB sponsored night so admission was free for everybody. The art was great the staff was all friendly and put up with my mothers continuous barrage of questioning with patience and understanding. Went around the outside grounds and enjoyed taking great pictures. Always loved the McNay but you will not find the grandest of art works like you will at larger museums.

  • We visited today, the museum is mostly modern and contemporary artwork. I personally am not a fan of most modern and contemporary art. The staff were very friendly. The architecture was very pretty (spanish colonial style). The green landscaping was great. The grounds would be a great place to explore if it was not as hot. Also, the museum was free. It is free the first Sunday of every month.

  • This museum was just recently renovated. There is so much to see and you would need a few hours to see it all. Check the website for admission prices and opportunities to get into free. There are sculptures outside and its a really pretty walk with a few water features.
