This mansion, a Spanish Colonial Revival house, dates back to 1926. It was constructed by Marion Koogler McNay. McNay was an oil heiress, an artist, and a collector. She turned the house into her own private museum during her lifetime. In 1950 when McNay left her residence, she turned it, along with her collection of 700 works, into the first museum of modern art in Texas.

Wow, what a spectacular space to host your special day. The gardens are gorgeous and the museum does NOT disappoint. Staff is just the best!
What can I say about the McNay... This is an amazing venue! We love filming weddings here. Every corner you turn is something beautiful. The venue is very spacious and when paired with the right vendors it really is majestic. Make sure and add the McNay to your list of venues you tour before you get married.
Love working at the McNay and also enjoy working with their professional staff. I especially love that you and your guests have access to 3 different areas in one location.
