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.

My wife, daughter and I went to see the Andy Warhol exhibit...I must say the unfinished movie looked, well, unfinished 😀. We actually loved the display and enjoyed both the grounds and the art. This is a San Antonio Treasure.

Picasso, Cezanne, El Greco, Rodin, Gauguin, Matisse, Mexican Artists, Local and Contemporary artists, and even a scene made of pasta is a little of what you can see here, and you don't even have to get to Europe..

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.
