Beautiful building that has been converted from a lovely home to a museum. Some really outstanding international art - the docents were very knowledgable and helpful with interesting facts about the family who donated much of the art.

Staff were entirely welcoming and helpful at this lovely museum that has both the character of an historic house and new galleries. A very enjoyable few hours. We're constant museum goers around the world, and we recommend a stop at the McNay.
