  • One of my favorite places on earth. As a museum they not only offer a chance to appreciate art and educate the mind and senses but also an environment where art becomes human and the human becomes more appealed to the art. They’re constantly changing the settings and displays, with basic information of the artist, the piece and style in both English and Spanish. The staff is very kind and always willing to break into conversation about anything art related.
  • A beautiful place filled with wonderful works of puertorrican art ranging from the 18th century to contemporary. It's family oriented and kid friendly. A must see.
