Overview
More
More than just an art museum, Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico hosts concerts and festivals as well. The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR), a non-for-profit organization, was inaugurated on July 1, 2000, as a legacy for the Puerto Rican people. The mission of the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico is to enrich the lives of its diverse audiences by making accessible and promoting the knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of visual arts from Puerto Rico and the world. The MAPR engages diverse communities to facilitate learning experiences about the visual arts through: the growth of a well-researched permanent collection exemplifying significant and representative examples of Puerto Rican art from the sixteenth century to the present; a dynamic program of exhibitions supported by engaging and exciting educational and cultural programs that collectively deepen the understanding of the role of the visual arts in the human experience and contribute to the creation of a curatorial legacy; documentation, research, interpretation, preservation, and conservation of the collection and the visual arts patrimony of Puerto Rico; and alliances with local, regional, and international museums and institutions to advance the knowledge of, access to, and understanding of the visual arts of the world.

This is a beautiful museum...the Marco Polo exhibit right now is fantastic. They have an amazing children's art education program located in the floors that were excavated and added below the historic main building. As usual, the museum shop has great items also!

Interesting local content. Some exceptional artworks. Nicely laid out. And a lovely garden with artworks and lots of interesting plant species. Definitely worth a visit especially if you are staying in the Condado area as it's within walking distance of most of the hotels.

Works are arranged by theme, not by date. For me that was great because you can see how the same subject is treated in different times and techniques. There was a Marco Polo exhibit that was worth the visit alone. The garden is spectacular.
