  • The Hispanic Society of America is, in my opinion, the best collection of existing Spanish art outside of Spain. It brings together a group of objects whose theme and chronology is very wide. It has an excellent bibliographical collection, masterpieces as Goya's Duchess of Alba, or the paintings by Sorolla, etc. In my opinion it has other collections that need to be fixed because they are worth a lot and would not initially call attention both the callers of wrought-iron doors

  • The lighting is awful on most of the portraits, and you cannot look at them face on because the light shines onto them! Lots of religious artifacts and a Goya or two, but the most interesting part if ...  more »

  • Came for the amazing collection of Joaquin Sorrolla large scale canvases. It's like a holy experience to sit in front of these masterpieces. Stayed for the antiquities and the history and the great interpretive information. Don't miss Anna Hyatt Huntington's magnificent sculptures outside in the courtyard of this beautiful historic building. My favorite museum in NYC.
  • great staff and materials .Thank you so much for all your help I really appreciate it.
  • Contrary to the museum's website or posted hours, this building is closed for the next two years. So keep that in mind before you run around the building in the pouring rain for 15 minutes trying to get in. Because you can't, and they literally can't be bothered to put up a sign saying that they are closed for two years. BONUS: When I called to ask how to get in, the woman working there told me that while they didn't post a sign in front of the building saying they were closed, I should have known about it because it was "on the news."
  • We took our children here this morning to participate in a group kids session and had a great time. It was set up like an informal art class, right there in the museum itself. It reminded me of my art classes in my university days, except it was geared at young kids 10 and younger. The program directors, Cristina and Marta, were really fantastic. I would recommend taking your kids here for one of these sessions if you can. The sesions are conducted in Spanish and are a great tool for the kids (and parents) to meet other families and gain education in Spanish.
  • Huge canvases of mostly religious paintings. There is a small section showing Spanish ceramics and earthenware. The museum is too dark to see signages very cleary but it was bad customer service that really ruined it for me. The female receptionist showed a lot of attitude from the get-go, gave incomplete information, and was too lazy to even man the baggage deposit room. She was on her smartphone the whole time I was there.
