We spent almost three hours in this museum. We started our visit at the special Augsburg, Germany exhibit. Since we had visited Augsburg, we found this exhibit to be delightful and very informative. The exhibit contained a collection of prints and woodcuts that depicted the history of Augsburg. The collection came from the National Gallery in Washington, DC.
Next we visited the Renaissance and Baroque paintings which were part Suida-Manning Collection which had been purchased by the University. This is a collection of many Renaissance and Baroque paintings. A very special, colorful touch was the roving docent. She gave us extensive information on how the Suida-Manning collection came to Texas. In addition, she told us the history and/or significance of two of the paintings. Also of interest is the exhibit of the restoration of old paintings. Our visit was definitely worth the time we spent there. We visited on Thursday; therefore, admission was free. We parked in the adjacent garage and the fee was minimal.
