Museum is a two story affair with different rooms depicting the history of Puerto Rico. Very well organized and put together. We just happened to stumble upon it while walking thru Old San Juan. Glad that we did.

Diversity is the spice of life. Interesting take on modern art. Loved that the man there kept a keen eye on us while we were there. We were told not to take pictures but the little kid in us was tempted. We were good and just enjoyed our time there.

Inside and out, this is a world-class museum with stunning art and a variety of interesting exhibits. We were there in time for the Marco Polo exhibition, room after room of artifacts from the times and places of his famous travels. If you go to Puerto Rico and love art, you must visit this beautiful museum.

This is a beautiful museum...the Marco Polo exhibit right now is fantastic. They have an amazing children's art education program located in the floors that were excavated and added below the historic main building. As usual, the museum shop has great items also!

From Old San Juan, take a bus here for 75 cents (exact change.) Or you may pay $20 for a cab. You will not see many tourists and very few cruise ship explorers since the museum is about 20 minutes by bus from the main bus station near the piers. The building is modern and the collection is contemporary in... More

Interesting local content. Some exceptional artworks. Nicely laid out. And a lovely garden with artworks and lots of interesting plant species. Definitely worth a visit especially if you are staying in the Condado area as it's within walking distance of most of the hotels.

It not a big museum that collects art work from those big names; but its an interesting museum collects good-quality art from local artists, who express their point of view as **PUERTO-RICANs**. Many art piece are very unique and memorizable, and you learned a lot about the culture in puerto rico after the visit. The staff there are really nice... More
