Visit the museum

Visit the internationally renowned Menil Collection, a museum that exhibits -- free of charge -- the private art collection of the late Dominique de Menil, heiress to a vast oil-services-equipment fortune.

The eclectic art, which includes Byzantine and medieval works as well as paintings by 20th-century masters René Magritte, Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns, is showcased in a building designed by noted Italian architect Renzo Piano. Wander the Menil's 30-acre campus and explore the main structure's satellites, such as the stark, ecumenical Rothko Chapel, where 14 of the painter's abstract works are displayed.
