  • Lots of classics and always a fresh exhibit. The best part is that it isn't too big a place that you can't see it all in a few hours. Oh, and bring a sweater. It's very cool in there.
  • Solid art museum. I see why it's so renowned. Surprisingly not very busy either. It's not super extensive, but for the size of the island it is very impressive. Don't miss the parking lot. It's tiny and right before the museum. Also bags need to be checked at the main desk but it's free so not a big deal. They have staff to let you know what can be photographed and what can't be. Make sure you go to their outside exhibits as well. Not many but worth your time.
  • The Museum was an excellent experience. The staf are very nice very helpful, the tour was very enlightening. The museum is small in comparison to other museums like the MET in New York or the Louvre in Paris or the Prado in Spain but it has some excellent exhibits and I think it's worth the visit
  • #ArtinPoncePuertoRico This museum is so rich in art history on the island and in all art Ponce, it was modern clean and well run. The art was amazing, I even saw a marble sculpture older than 100 A.D. fantastic to see something like that. A definite must see if you are ever in Puerto Rico.
  • A jewel in the crown of the Caribbean for art lovers! Unfortunately when I went with visiting family members there were no guides in the halls to explain the displays. I remember them being present in every hall in my previous visits. Hopefully they come back!
