Description:

The core of the museum is a 24-room Spanish Colonial Revival house donated by oil heiress Marion McNay in 1950. She also donated her collection of 19th- and 20th-century European and American paintings. Take a relaxing stroll through the property's 23 acres, including beautiful gardens of native Texas plants and flowers. If you want a special treat, plan to have lunch at the Carriage House Bistro on site and dine outside on the patio. For a scenic trip to the gardens, hop onto the VIA Sightseer bus No. 7. Bring your camera to take pictures of the grounds. The McNay is a popular spot for bridal and fashion shoots because of its beautiful gardens and courtyards.
