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.

  • An amazing museum. The José Alicea exhibit on right now is incredible. The folk art and history exhibits are great. Worth so much more than $6.
  • Very interesting museum in an old Spanish military base building. They have a great exhibition of the culture of PR, artist. Great little restaurant downstairs for tapas and other food. Also so close to the house of Ponce de Leon and the San Felipe El Morro Castle it makes it a very nice stop to seethe exhibit.
