The museum building is beautiful and modern. The collection trends towards very religious art but it was nice to see the work of some local Puerto Rican artists. There were a few lesser known works by European artists but mostly artists I had never heard of.

I had honestly never visited a museum before, having never seen the value. We had brunch at the restaurant and decided to try it. So glad that we did! Amazing art!!

The museum is beautiful - truly stunning; the docents knowledgeable and passionate about the art; admission is inexpensive. There is a small parking lot beside the museum and also "on street" parking in front and behind the museum. And there is a gift shop, snack shop and a restaurant. The staff is very friendly. They love the museum and seem... More

I remember the 1st time I visited this place as a child I was mesmerized by the quality of paintings I saw. Years later I visited the museum again, and was again taken aback by so much art, colors, history... They even had a vegigante mask exposition.

We had a guided tour with a young woman from the museum who was knowledgeable about the artwork and patient with the group. The museum is in a beautiful building and has excellent exhibits and paintings from European masters as well as Puerto... More

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.
