I loved the cars and things to see! However if you are coming from USA there is no stores you aren't familiar with. They need more bathrooms.

This is so inexpensive to see you will feel you should go back and give them more. This is especially true if you engage the men and women in the various galleries. They are well versed on the artists, the history and the significance of the galleries work to Puerto Rico and to tourists alike.

Exhibits are changed from time to time; but, when we were there all were fascinating. There was a "native peoples" display that included casts of current day native people, many done in the Amazon. There were murals, photograhs and numerous American crafts on display. The Puerto Rican history display was helpful in understanding the unique culture of Puerto Rico.

This museum was centered around a court yard with several exhibition rooms each with a specific history on PR. The exhibits were educational and about the history of Puerto Rico. My husband is disabled and they had one rickety wheelchair for us to use.
