  • Excellent museum when you want to focus on Puerto Rican art. The regular entrance fee is $6.5, which makes it a bit expensive though if you visit it with several people
  • Sierra, our guide, was friendly, funny, bilingual and very knowledgeable about the history of P.R., the artists, and the stories behind the artwork. My family and I had a great time. ($6.69 admission for adults and $3 for children, seniors, and students with ID).I left the museum feeling inspired! Definitely coming back!
  • Great museum highlighting art from across the island. Plus, at only $3 for students, it's criminal not to go. The biggest attracting though has to be the sculpture garden. Meandering and spacious, it's a lot of fun.
  • Great museum, housed in an old hospital, the museum offers innovating exhibitions, with an extensive education program. Great staff. Relaxing garden.
  • Great museum. Beautiful building, lovely staff and very interesting exhibits.
