  • The museum is well laid out. It is small, but it has different sections. It has a nice ambience, well lit and cool ac. There isn't much diversity in terms of painting style, periods or themes.
  • Great collection of art. Great atmosphere. One of my favorite places in Puerto Rico
  • Nice permanent and visiting collections make this a great destination for art lovers. My 8 yr old and I enjoyed wandering and discussing the art styles thru the ages. The Granada garden is a nice outdoors space. We spent ~2hrs.
  • It may be the biggest art museum in the Caribbean, but ... I didn't find it all that impressive. The building is beautiful. We found one of the temporary exhibits significantly more interesting than the permanent collection.
  • They have a large collection of highly valued historic paintings, as well as sculptures and other forms of art. The museum also has a coffee shop where you can find delicious coffee (truly!), home-made muffins, a selection of sandwiches, croissants, hummus toasts, among other tasty things to eat. You can also find a store where you can find many interesting gifts or souvenirs and a restaurant. Overall it is a great experience to just either have coffee with a good book and/or enjoy the majestic collections.
