  • Upgrading the exhibitions after upgrading the outdoor painting. The museum is the center of Vieques social justice and has a good book store on the resistance and access to local artists and talent.  more »
  • We visited the museum twice while there and loved the views, and the staff at the museum were so fun and kind! Great place for pictures and history, as well as art.  more »

  • The small fort is a nice side trip while on the island of Vieques in the main town of Isabel II. Built in 1848 by the Spaniards to monitor the British boats leaving nearby British Virgin Islands. The fort sits on top of a hill with panoramic views of the ocean and nearby island of Culebra and Puerto Rico. On a clear day you can see St. Croix and BVI.
  • It's one of the island's pride and Joy...
  • Modern art and some old artefacts. Mostly in Spanish.
  • The end part of the 1986 film - Heartbreak Ridge - with Clint Eastwood was filmed here.
  • A beautiful building with great history; a must see if you're on Vieques. Fantastic art exhibit, architecture of the building, and amazing photo opportunities of the island. Small gift shop with great selection of books and other items.
