In addition to seeing paintings by household names such as Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Renoir, O'Keeffe and Cézanne, half the fun is wandering the spectacular Spanish Colonial revival-style mansion that was the private residence of Marion Koogler McNay.

San Antonio Grand Sightseeing Tour


Upon her death in 1950, Marion Koogler McNay left her impressive collection of European and American modern art to the city. It has since been supplemented with even more art and the collection is now among the best in the Southwest.

The Stieren Center for Exhibitions was added in June 2008 and, while it doesn't integrate seamlessly with the original mansion (the center describes itself as a 'translucent, two-story box'), it does add 45,000 sq ft of exhibition space for rotating shows.
