  • Museum easy to navigate that not bored. I loved the room of Gabo. Impossible not to get moved to the end. Thanks to all the sponsors!

  • I went to visit him with my American husband, and has a great defect, NOTHING is translated into English or any other language, is a Museum for only people speaking Spanish. Neither signs nor the people who work at the Museum as counselors speak English, my husband asked to a couple of them something, and the answer was: "I'm sorry, we do not""handle" "English"

  • I had read so much about this Museum, but it was a little disappointing. While physically a large museum, each floor is only half filled and provides a moderate amount of information. Nothing is in English, so if you don't speak Spanish, you're out of luck.
  • Beautiful Building, and well designed exhibits.
  • Espectacular.
  • Lots of interesting information. It makes you take your appreciation of the Caribbean area, with all its customs, its great diversity of cultures, flora, fauna, gastronomy, etc. I will appreciate less digital exhibitions, fewer screens and texts, and more physical things, but still worth going around it.
