Welcome to the McNay’s online collection database.

Since Marion Koogler McNay’s founding bequest, the McNay Art Museum’s collection has expanded to include more than 22,000 works of art. Our online collection database features selections from our holdings, with an emphasis on our collection’s strengths. More object records are regularly being added to the searchable database. You can now view 15,000 items online.


The Search allows you to look for any words describing an object or person.

Enter the words you wish to search for. For more specific results: you can search on a phrase (e.g. "San Antonio"), include a word (e.g. +landscape), exclude a word (e.g. -drawings), or search on part of a word (e.g. paint*). Please see the help topic on the Search for more details on how to enter your searches.
