  • This museum never disappoints me. It's always different works from all sorts of artist.
  • A FANTASTIC ART MUSEUM!!!! Fairly small, you can probably cover it in an hour. The security guards are friendly, and last time I went, a local performance artist was being showcased. Just really like the vibe lol it's so colorful.
  • The museum is truly a part and representation of the community around it. Education Programs extend into the public art of el barrio. Make sure to keep your eyes open as you walk towards and leave the museum.
  • My daughter loves the "Coqui Club" ;). First Wed of each month.
  • Really nice museum with lots of art from Latin American artists. The entrance fee also gives entrance to the Museum of the City New York next door
