McNay Art Museum
The first modern art museum in Texas
The McNay Art Museum engages a diverse community in the discovery and enjoyment of the visual arts. Built in the 1920s by artist and educator Marion Koogler McNay, the Spanish Colonial Revival residence became the site of Texas’s first modern art museum when it opened in 1954.
The McNay Art Museum is just a 2 minute drive from the home. It has different exhibitions throughout the year.
The McNay Art Museum, located in San Antonio and named for founder Marion Koogler McNay, is the first museum of modern art in Texas.
You'll find thousands of art pieces from ancient to contemporary works. The grounds are perfect for a picnic lunch.
“Free Tuesday afternoons - I recommend buying the extra exhibit pass for $10 online so you can walk past the free line (that can be rather long)”
“If you need something to get your mind of of daily stress this is a beautiful place to go 🖼 ”
“We love to visit the zoo. The animals are always active, and they have lots of different events during the year.”
“A must visit if you have young kids - so many things to play, see and discover. There is a great outdoor play area as well as a spot to blow bubbles and explore a treehouse.”
“The Pearl is a revitalized area featuring upscale dining, casual dining, bars, shops and common areas to mingle, or enjoy the scenic riverwalk. There are various parking areas if you drive, or a 5 minute Lyft will get you there easily!”
