You wouldn't expect to find a decent art collection in San Antonio, but the McNay is a standout, as is the building. Doesn't compare to the great museums of NY or LA, but far better the collections of many more well known cities. Worth an...More

The grounds are stunning, the building a piece of art in itself. The collection rivals many more famous museums. Well curated

For our visit there were many schoolchildren there, noisy and lively, which enhanced the experience but wouldn't necessarily appeal to everyone! An amazing variety of art including modern interactive art and interesting outdoor sculpture. Well worth a visit.

My first visit to the McNay. Amazing grounds, sculptures and landscaping. The fundraising event was well executed and a fun time.

The McNay Art Museum is a must-visit in San Antonio. The Spanish Colonial style building that houses the museum is a destination in itself. Inside you'll find works by Georgia O'Keefe, Matisse and Picasso. Set aside two to three hours to thoroughly enjoy everything the...More

We came for Kusama exhibition but stayed to look at the permanent art collection. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that (Cezanne, Renoir, Picasso, etc.) but also quite a few "less-known" worthy pieces of art. A really good curator job! We...More

It’s around $20 for Adults and $15 for active duty military.My suggestion is to visit during free events and free general admission days! It’s not really worth the $20 entrance fees.
