  • 10% Discount at The Menil Collection Bookstore

    Valid for pass owner only.

Making art accessible is vital to the Menil’s mission, so no admission is charged and all public programs are free. All of the Menil campus buildings are entered at ground level, symbolic of its democratic ideals. The museum’s own collection—displayed in two-thirds of the main building and often rotated—is built around several types of art loved and collected from the 1940s to the 1990s by the Menil Collection’s founders, John and Dominique de Menil. Best known are the Surrealist and other modern European painting and sculpture. Also included are Byzantine and medieval art and artifacts; African, Pacific Islands, and Pacific Northwest Native art; art of the ancient Americas and the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. The collection area that has grown the most since the museum opened in June 1987 is American art since World War II.

Public programs to attract, educate, and inspire diverse audiences are vital to the life of the Menil. Exhibiting artists lecture or perform; curators and scholars explore exhibitions, collections, and artworks; music, dance, and poetry performances are held; and there is an annual lecture that focuses on an artist in the collection and a symposium exploring a theme in a research fellow’s work. Programs are organized to foster conversation.
