Upon opening to the public in 1954, the McNay’s collection began with a strong emphasis on Modern European and American art, particularly French painting and Post-Impressionism, and now includes over 20,000 objects. Collection strengths include American art since World War II, Modern European and American prints and drawings, and a collection of over 9,000 Theatre Arts objects focusing on scene and costume designs. The museum began in a 24-room Spanish Colonial-Revival home and has expanded to 45,000 square feet and a sculpture gallery and garden.
