  • What a wonderful museum showcasing Puerto Rico art through the years. From landscapes to art with a political theme. It is easy to find and easy to spend 2-3 hours enjoying it.

  • Loved the variety of contemporary, modern and classical art. The outdoor exhibit area is very pretty and peaceful. The docents were very helpful and knowledgeable. The cost of admission was also very reasonable. The gift shop could use upgrading and offer more items.
  • Very nice. The informational plaques were in both English and Spanish. The large room size exibits were super cool! I also enjoyed the large scale paintings and the art with audio features. The garden is also very nice.
  • Was such a great experience and beautiful, meaningful and historical art pieces. Staff were very friendly and were bilingual. I highly recommend you visit to learn more about the history and people of PR!
  • I went today, very beautiful. Amazing sculptures and paintings. Some allow you to interact with the sculptures in a fun way and it has an amazing garden. I fully recommend it. Amazing and very friendly service with lots of respect and trust. They make you feel welcome and cared for.
  • Lovely modern art (post 1930ish) collection of Puerto Rican artists. Unfortunately very limited explanatory plaques, makes it difficult to contextualize or understand the importance of any of the pieces. Come for 60-90 minutes, I don't think you'll need more time. Building is breathtaking and elegant. Admission $6+tax, separate entry fee for special exhibits.
