Don't miss. We live in NYC and this museum was of the highest calibre. We also got to hear a rare piano concert there, so don't forget to see what else might be going on at the museum.

The Rubens' Wise Men of the East and the Jack Delano:100 years, as well as the permanent collections, are worth seeing. The building is beautiful and everyone is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The museum shop has very nice and original things. I enjoyed the visit very much.

Most of the art is more traditional, centering about the 1800's or so. I enjoyed it very much. The building is a beautiful space in it's own right and houses the art very well. One huge bonus is that this museum is open on Mondays when many other tourist sites are closed.

This is an amazing, modern art gallery which is an absolute must if you are anywhere near Ponce. We wouldn't have visited us, but someone in the UK told us about it. The art on display so magnificent and displayed well. Would you expect a Gallery in Puerto Rico to have Rubens, Van Dyck, Rembrandt etc. Magnificent

Everything. The collection is diversified representing many aspects of Puertorrican art forms as well as European classics. The building is beautiful, admission reasonable, docent a friendly & all speak English. The write ups & tours are multilingual. 4 hours just doesn't do it justice. We were lucky enough to see the Jack Delano hundred years of photographing Puertorrican workers, it... More
