This museum was included in a guided tour of Old San Juan and we wouldn't have normally visited it because we don't know the language. But we had an excellent guide - Camilo! He was so friendly and knowledgeable and really brought all of the exhibits to life. The exhibits on the early natives of Puerto Rico was extremely interesting,... More

I really enjoyed the exhibit, but we went in late and they did not tell us we had so little time. We were asked to leave before we finished the tour.

My wife and I visited the Museo de las Americas briefly while we were in Old San Juan recently. We walked through the interior grounds of this very large building with a massive courtyard. The building itself is very picturesque and well maintained.

We were disappointed in this museum, there really wasn't much there to see other than some art. The art was nice but by people we had never heard of.

I'm really glad we were able to see a museum during our time in Puerto Rico, and really glad this is the one we saw! There was some rich history but what I loved even more was that it was a true collaboration of the arts. One section was all about the indigenous people and then the next exhibit was... More

Even though not all of the exhibits were open, we thoroughly enjoyed all that we visited. Learned a lot about the history of the Americas. Wish more were also in English.

The highlight of this museum are the guides and the information they provide. Will not go back to see it as once you've been you've seen it all, but we do recommend it if you haven't been there.

Unfortunately, we only saw a few exhibits. The majority of them were closed and the the workers take a break for one hour at noon so we just left. I feel we got to see the main exhibits and a nice documentary, but I really wanted to see the African American section which was supposed to be there. The guides... More
