Visit The Hispanic Society of America

The Hispanic Society of America in New York City is a wonderful museum that should really be on your list of places to visit. The Hispanic Society of America is both a museum and reference library and is FREE!

What can you see at this museum?

-The museum has an extensive collection of Spanish art, tiles, pottery, textiles, ironwork, jewelry, and also includes art from Portugal and Latin America. You will find a large plaza in the middle of the two museum buildings filled with wonderful sculptures (see images above for some examples). However the most prized pieces in the museum are murals by the Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida. The paintings by Sorolla depict each region of Spain, showing key architectural sights and also focusing on the traditional regional costumes. The paintings by Sorolla cover the walls in the main museum room and are truly something to admire!
