Visitor Information

The Hispanic Society Museum & Library, located on Audubon Terrace in Upper Manhattan west of Broadway between 155th and 156th Streets, was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) with the object of establishing a free, public museum and research library for the study of the arts and cultures of Spain and Latin America. The Museum and Library collections, which cover nearly every aspect of art and culture in Spain – as well as Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines – into the 20th century, are unparalleled in their scope and quality outside of Spain. Paintings by El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, and Sorolla; masterworks of sculpture; and outstanding examples from all fields of the decorative arts offer visitors a panorama of the arts of the Hispanic world. The collection of prints and photographs – which documents the architecture, peoples, and customs of Spain and Latin America – contains many masterful works, art, history, and literature.
