  • It is a very pleasant place to visit. There is a huge and impressive art collection. The place is well kept. I enjoyed my visit. There is only one thing that I don't understand. I am a retired veteran of war. When I asked if they had a military discount, they answered me that it was only available for active personnel. I find this unbelievable. It is not about the discount, it is about the fact of equal recognition.
  • I was very happy with the collection they have here! The facility is modern. I really enjoyed my visit. Recommended if you are in the area, see some art. Enjoy the great AC!
  • We arrived an hour before closing, but as it was going to be our obl chance to see the collection we bought tickets to see the permanent collection only. I guess you can buy a more expensive ticket to see visiting exhibits. We spent the majority of the hour viewing only one small section of the collection. With 10 minutes left we went upstairs to be informed there was another ENTIRE floor of art work. Most of the second floor was older religious related works. Which were amazing, as I raced around and saw them... When we return to PR we will set an entire day to visit.
  • Decent sized collection of art. The masks exhibit waa my favorite. Some of the art can be easily photographed other pieces will earn you a talking too by security. Photographed everything to post on social media. Was fun exercising my freedom of speech rights.
  • Wonderful collection of Victorian art, masterful pieces of Puerto Rican artists, beautiful gardens, convenient parking. Came with mom and a 6-year old and we had a great time learning about our heritage and legacy!
