A great place to see many different styles of art

The Mc Nay Art Museum features many different art forms and artists from all periods. The house and gardens are beautiful as well. It is a great place to spend an afternoon.

Extensive art collection, from local to classic. The current special exhibition was very eclectic and interesting. There are statues and modern art paintings. It is so large and on different levels that I couldn't find my wife when I thought I had seen everything. It turned out that I hadn't made it to a building across the lovely patio.

Came here on a rainy morning when all of the outdoor sites weren't an option. The old mansion that houses the museum is beautiful and the older pieces in the collection were my favorite. There is a nice amount of history about the old house as well. The new addition houses the more modern pieces and has a nice mix... More

We found this art museum to be excellent. The paintings inside are a must to see. Seniors cost only $ 5.00 and that is a bargin.

Everything is bigger in Taxas, right?... well its true, even the weather is sunny and pleasant with thank-heaven, low humidity. We were hanging out to get to the this epicentre where all my favourite US artists' works are hung. Hopper, O'keefe are the super stars, with plenty of European cousins on display, as well as,Gauguin and Picasso. We came to... More

We went on one of our first dates and loved it. We like to go on Thursdays after 5pm because it's free. They usually have some kind of art show so there is always something new to see. It's a great place look at art pieces and if you want some peace and quiet.

Beautiful property with many outdoor sculptures and water features. Very nice staff who are more than happy to answer any questions you have. Nice gift shop. Now the art. I love the impressionist, cubist, expressionists, modernist and even Warhol and O'Keeffe. Also, the Theater art, European, American and on and on. A nice selection of all types of art. Part... More

Of all the San Antonio museums, this is the one I most wanted to see due to the fact it incorporates a mansion within its space. The original space as well as the ways in which it transitions to other architectural designs make it a fun hodgepodge. The museum collection is wonderful, and I've never seen anything like the Ballet... More

Much larger in size than it appears on the exterior, and gorgeous gardens throughout property. An artistic escape through and through.
