Museo de Las Americas, San Juan
(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Museo de Las Americas serves as an art museum dedicated to the Native American tribes from all over the Americas. Observe exhibits detailing the different peoples from around the Americas and where they originated from and lived. A highlight is the bronze castings and statues that display prominent figures from specific tribes. Another room's exhibits display folk art of the indigenous people with several examples. A separate display room focuses on Puerto Rico (instead of the Americas as a whole) and gives a great walkthrough of the indigenous people's history. Take a look at our San Juan travel itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Museo de Las Americas and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • We did not find this to be clearly marked or well run. When we first arrived there was no clear signage as to exactly where in the building was the actual museum. Then there was no one to check us in ...  more »
  • Nothing much except for the museum. We did not go in to explore. It was closed. Stopped by tonight and took some photoshoots of night lights. Awesome! 
  • It is very good plan for tomorrow or later idle in old San Juan. Didactic Museum about all the American ethnic groups that still survive and the process of conquest and colonization, miscegenation. For anyone who wants to learn about the Puerto Rican roots

  • Beautiful artifacts. Great history on how we came to be what we are today in the Americas. I enjoyed in particular, the history of the Taino Indians and Puerto Rico.
  • It's just amazing! Indians, africans, and colonization are the must. It wan't crowded in the early morning, so people over-watching the exhibitions were guiding us and providing us additional information.
  • Very well done. Interesting and informative
  • Not really much here.. it's an enh museum.. maybe get air conditioning.. sit down at one of the videos.. otherwise $6 and time seem wasted..
  • Hermoso museo
