I will most definitely go to Meadows Museum again. I really enjoyed myself there. The employees were nice and helpful. I went with my 3 year old son and he even enjoyed himself talking to me regarding the art in the exhibit. I will tell my friends about Meadows Museum and encourage them to go as well.

A lovely, small museum. Some exhibits are better than others, of course, but always something worth going to see. Friendly staff. Great gift shop.

We LOVEd our visit to this museum! We went with friends and we had a delightful 1 1/2 hour visit. I would recommend to allow 2 hours to read all and to browse the gift shop. They had Martin Rico, the Spanish artist's paintings when we were there , and he is now my favorite artist!

From Our Editors

While strolling the halls of Madrid's famous Prado Museum in the 1950s, Texas oilman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows fell in love with the rich tradition of Spanish art. Gradually building a collection of Iberian masterworks from throughout the centuries, Meadows helped found his eponymous museum to house and display the art. Now among the largest collections of Spanish art outside of Spain, the Meadows Museum surrounds visitors with masterpieces from the 10th century through the 21st. The collection's highlights include Goya's darkly evocative Yard with Madmen, Picasso's patchwork Still Life in a Landscape, and Míró's colorfully surreal Queen Louise of Prussia.

Outside the museum's elegant colonnade, an encircling garden recalls Renaissance palaces with manicured bushes, stately gravel paths, and feral court jesters. Beautiful sculptures by modern greats fleck the garden, with such pieces as the 13-foot, wireframe head Sho, by modern Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa. Below the plaza, Santiago Calatrava's monumental Wave dominates the approach to the museum, with gently undulating iron beams, suspended over a serene reflecting pool that will itself never know the joy of forming a wave.
