“Texas's first museum of modern art”
The McNay Art Museum, founded in 1950 in San Antonio, is the first modern art museum in the State of Texas. The museum was created by Marion Koogler McNay's original bequest of most of her fortune, her important art collection and her 24-room Spanish Colonial Revival-style mansion that sits on 23 acre that are landscaped with fountains, broad lawns and a Japanese-inspired garden and fishpond.
Every second Thursday of the month (6-9pm) you can catch some free live music outdoors and eat from awesome local food trucks!
If you are looking to visit any museums in San Antonio, the McNay should be first on your list. This is by far the most beautiful museum in SA Town. The collection as well as the grounds are impressive. Every twist and turn of the mansion is decorated with beautiful hand painted tiles, elaborately carved wood work, painted ceilings, and landscaped gardens. The museum also boasts a large collection of outdoor sculptures throughout the property. It is a photographers dream. Parking is free, free admission every Thursday after 4pm , and complimentary wheelchairs are available upon request.
