  • Perfect for a rainy day outing!! Great works of art and cool layout, especially the upstairs. Love all the different gardens. Highly recommend going soon during the Isabel exhibit. Amazing history told through the art and there are dresses and other clothing to dress up in and take pictures with the art in the exhibit! Super cool and fun
  • There are regularly new and different exhibitions. Students of UPR-Ponce and PUCPR do not have to pay the entrance fee.
  • It is good and interesting. Im not a museum person, but the only reason i give a 3 stars is because they dont let video cameras inside.
  • It's no smithsonian, but it was very high quality, beautiful art. I had wished that some of the pieces had a little more back story to them, but the ones that did were very informative an interesting. All of the signs are in English and Spanish. The price is very reasonable, and if you are a student there is a discount. I would say that this is a must-see site in Ponce.
  • Impressive collection of 16th and 17th century art housed in a state ot the art facility. Friendly and informative staff. Free parking. A must see.
