I researched what museum I wanted to visit and McNay was the winner. I love the progression of Picasso artwork, the Love statue, & gift shop. I feel the $10 general admission (they also discounts for military, students, etc) was a great deal.

It’s around $20 for Adults and $15 for active duty military.My suggestion is to visit during free events and free general admission days! It’s not really worth the $20 entrance fees.
