Stroll through the well-preserved rooms lined with hundreds of works by some of Europe's most influential artists, including Francisco Goya, François Boucher, and El Greco. You also can view one of the largest collections of "art book" paintings in the world. Take the guesswork out of planning a New York City vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Inside is an open garden area with fountain which is beautiful. On the first Friday of the month they host a special evening with free entry and talks on the history of the place and certain art pieces.
