About

The Briscoe Western Art Museum, named in honor of the late Texas Governor, Dolph Briscoe, Jr. and his wife, Janey, preserves and interprets the art, history, and culture of the American West through engaging exhibitions, educational programs, and public events reflective of the region’s rich traditions and shared heritage. 

Located on San Antonio's famed River Walk, the institution is housed in San Antonio’s first Public Library and newly constructed pavilion designed by the nationally recognized architecture firm Lake|Flato.  The Briscoe Campus consists of the historic Museum building, the Jack Guenther Pavilion and the adjacent McNutt Courtyard & Sculpture Garden spread across one-and-a-quarter acres in downtown San Antonio.
