Not much to see, simply a 5 minute photo stop.. This is where the bus tour begins, take cash for the tour, they do not accept cards.. The downtown area kinda creeped me out after 6 pm though..

My family and I drove from San Juan for the day just to see this museum on the recommendation of a former local who works with my wife. I owe that guy a bottle of rum. This might have been the most surprising and delightful two hours of our week-long trip to PR. After a gorgeous morning drive on PR-52... More

Best museum I've ever been to! The art was unbelievable. We saw things that I will never see but only in a book. There was a local photographer who had an exhibit. The photos were a great representation of PR history.

It is beautiful, and includes an excellent permanent collection. excellent location. The staff is courteous, and friendly. Visit the archive and the library. There is also a very nice Gift Shop, where you can buy fine merchandise. It is also a )romantic place, specially, the "Jardin de Granada" (Grenade Garden).

I had not gone to this museum since the early 80's. It has been restored and renovated. Great job. The art is well selected. I'm sure more will be added. They had a great exhibition of photography, many of which trace the history of the island, but I had to hurry through it at the end. But you can spend... More

This museum is beautiful! Tha staff was very friendly. The entrance charge was $6 +tax which was acceptable. We took the 2PM guided tour, which I highly recommend. (There's another one at 11AM). The experience was delightful. The art is magnificent, impressive, overwhelming. It's worth spending the afternoon there. We had a great time!
