Reviewed 6 April 2012

I took my kids here and we had a wonderful time exposing them to a broad variety of world-class fine art. We'll be back.

“Snore Fest”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Maybe I'm not artsy fartsy enough to appreciate it, but I love artwork (oil, watercolor, etc.) but you won't find this here. Only drawing & photographs. I thought this place was a total bore. However, the grounds are gorgeous & there are some really cool statues & sculptures. It's a great place for a photo shoot but that's about all it's good for.

“Enjoy the McNay Art Museum”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

The grounds and the McNay mansion itself are worth a vist. Add the world-class art exhibits, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and you will enjoy yourself while viewing European and American paintings, sculpture, and the special theatre art collection.

“Get some culture on your next visit”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

The McNay has wonderful collections and after five hours we had only seen part of it. Time did not permit a second visit which would have been perfect. We did find some trouble crossing a very busy road from the bus and then there was a long walk up the drive. We took a taxi back to our B&B and would use one both ways the next time.
