  • The Building is a gorgeous example of modern Caribbean architecture and the collection is a must see. Very complete and carefully curated.

  • We had a fun hour that we spent looking at the art in this museum. It is a good way to stop by on your drive around Puerto Rico and the building itself is really gorgeous.

  • I would like to preface this review with we were the first tour after the quakes. I would have liked to have had the knowledge of needing a reservation prior to arrival; this should be updated in all forms of social media, website, and Google maps. The first person attending us misused the word website with app, and it took me forever and the actual curator to help me make a reservation. Unfortunately, you MUST follow the group BEFORE, viewing the art at your leisure. However, given the circumstances the team has with the building's conditions, they did a good job with what they could in the annex building. The art selection, I was glad to see, had some of the classics.
  • It's my favorite museum, don't get me wrong. I've visited this museum 3 times but the last time I went (4th visit) it was temporary closed and I wasn't aware because that detail was not updated on Google. Like I said, don't get me wrong, it's an amazing museum.
  • ¡Peaceful place! Right now the Museum is closed due the earthquakes. You have to call first.
