If you don’t know this museum - you will be amazed!
It’s a little known NYC gem housing one of the world’s finest collections of Hispanic art.
The Museum and Library collections, which cover nearly every aspect of art and culture in Spain – as well as Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines – into the 20th century, are unparalleled in their scope and quality outside of Spain. Paintings by El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, and Sorolla; masterworks of sculpture; and outstanding examples from all fields of the decorative arts offer visitors a panorama of the arts of the Hispanic world. The collection also includes the Vespucci Map of the World
Admission is free although they ask for a donation. (Personally on my last visit I felt more inclined towards generosity than I usually do at the NYC tourist mega- museums.)
