The main museum building, at nearly 38,000 square feet, occupies the historic and architecturally significant former San Antonio Central Library built in 1930. The newly constructed Jack Guenther Pavilion was designed by the nationally recognized and award winning architecture firm Lake/Flato. At nearly 21,000 square feet, the three-story Pavilion consists of space for both public and private events. The adjacent McNutt Courtyard and Sculpture Garden will serve as both a public space during the Museum’s operating hours, and will also be available for special events.
