New Hours Beginning Tuesday, September 4, 2018

We will come back from the Labor Day holiday to new public hours at the McNay. As part of our commitment to making the McNay even more accessible, we will have new hours -- what we are calling “Beyond Business Hours” -- beginning Tuesday, September 4, 2018. In addition to being closed to the public on Mondays, we will now be closed on Tuesdays as well – except for school tours. Additionally, we will be open from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays, giving more people an opportunity to visit the McNay after school or office hours. Thursdays stay the same, with hours from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, with free admission from 4:00 to 9:00. Saturdays and Sundays remain the same.
