  • 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.
  • This museum is one the most smallest museums I've been to. Nothing much to see here, they change their gallery and shows time to time but not really worth my time really. I rather go to the Metropolitan. I'm a little disappointed when I came here. At most I'll be here for 30minutes and leave with disappointment. I got some lecture to understand the past but I can easily obtain them online.
  • 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.
  • Even though is small, it has a collection of art and the personal is opened to give you any direction. After a quit visit to the museum you also can go to the Musseum of NYC is next to this and enjoy of best part of the Workd Central Part.
  • My daughter loves the "Coqui Club" ;). First Wed of each month.
