Great building. Eclectic collection: new art, political art, historical art, questionable art. Most translated into English, but not all. Very friendly & helpful guides. Small gift shop. No cafe. We spent 2 hours there including a picnic lunch. Tip: you can park on the grounds if not crowded.

We enjoyed the Puerto Rico Museum of Art a lot more than this one. Maybe I'm just not that into Contemporary Art, but it all was a little weird for my girls (7 & 10)and I. They just ask that you make a donation to get in, not mandatory.

I enjoyed this museum, though not as much as some of the other art museums in San Juan. It's a bit off the beaten path, in a non-touristy neighborhood in Santurce. Some really nice abstracts, experimental paintings. There was a Paisaje de Puerto Rico exhibit with some interesting landscapes when I was there. Call me an art critic, but a... More

We enjoyed our visit to this exquisite museum. The variety of local and international artists is worth the trip. May of the artists exhibited during our visit are well known in the international arena. The works of art where interesting, modern, and edgy. I love the gift shop and the diversity of books and multimedia offered there. The museum is... More

It did not work for us. Walking up, the security guard gruffly told us to use the steps and not the wide ramp. Then, at the reception desk, the entry fee is by donation. I inserted our money into the marked slot only to be quickly chastened that the donations must be given at the NEXT desk. Humbled, we trod... More

This Museum is located in Santurce, with ample parking facilities, very close to Condado Area. The day we visited, the Symphonic Orchestra, was practicing in the atrium. This they do on specific days of the week and you pay a nomianl fee to listen to the rehearsal. It was magical! There is a small gift shop where you can find... More
