Went to the museum with great expectations, unfortunately all the exhibits were closed. Did walk around the building, which has a gorgeous courtyard.

Adults will like this infinitely more than kids or teens. The collection here is small but interesting. Remember that it's contemporary and keep your mind open. Building was clean and affordable. Perfect too for a rainy-day adventure if you can't hit the beach.

Visiting this museum was magical. It is housed in an old school in the hip, scruffy Santurce neighborhood. Friendly, elderly Puerto Ricans guard the galleries, which are installed in the old classrooms. You open the door to the classrooms and enter a world of wonders....More

This is a small art museum, well worth a visit. We came by on a Saturday when there was a wedding being held in the courtyard. This added to the experience, as we could view the wedding from the surrounding hallways which opened to the...More

A nice collection of artists especially Spanish and Latin American. Fine location and parking garage. Walk around the area to see impressive sculptures.

The museum represents a breath of fresh air in an otherwise tainted community, where cultural and social differences clash constantly; these clashes make the museum necessary, however. The building has been beautifully refurbished and the personnel in the galleries are all attentive, yet unobtrusive. I...More

An excelent evening. Easy to find if you are not familiar with the area, parking on site and very helpful employees. This was a school turned into a Museum...beautiful construction. I did not see handicapped access, but I did see elevators!
