  • If I understand correctly, New York experienced guilt before Spanish-speaking residents, which relatively recently evicted from territories adjacent to Central Park and they did a semblance of cultural space where they could feel at home. In practice, it looks like El Barrio-first floor apartment house in scaffolding, half the premises repairs and permanantnyj goes two-three rooms are busy, very secondary to the spirit. The richness and diversity of Spanish-speaking America not represented at all. Nearby is a dozen world-class museums for every taste, so it is not worth wasting time on this museum.

  • not give life to visit it but if you have a little free time okay, ideal for the days of rain, but no one you asked to return if you went to visit him

  • It's a great small museum. Definitely not first tier but if you are in the area definitely worth a stop. It's one of the very few museums to display modern Latino artwork.
  • The first Wednesday of the month the Museum holds the Coqui Club. The Coqui Club is for children birth to 4 years old with wonderful bilingual story time and a craft to follow according to the story. Great program!!!
  • I WAS AT A EVENT WITH MY CHURCH ! LIFE CHANGERS CHURCH AT THIS PLACE AND IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
  • Lovely museum. Rather small but the exhibits were varied from Latin American artists of many different mediums. More focus on the diaspora in the US. Cafe is nice as well. Buying tickets here gave us free entry to the more expensive city museum next door.
  • Great, place please come an bring your family, sure to have great fun
