Owner description: 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.

Excellent visit. I had a limited time frame, but was able to see and enjoy the excellent Interconexiones exhibit.

A small art collection in a beautiful building worth visiting. I am intrigued with carved saints called Santos and this museum has an extensive collection.

When to the CineFiesta film festival, it was a great experience!
The museum has great facilities and exhibitions; it's a fabolous turist attraction - also visit the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Puerto Rico.

Hotel checkout was at 1:00 and our flight didn't leave until 6:00, so we used the time to visit the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. The original part of the building was an old hospital, but the large addition is all modern with a towering ceiling on the main level and a wall of gorgeous colored glass. We loved the interesting collection of art which is creatively displayed. The interactive children's section is delightful. Outside is a sculpture garden and koi pond.

The museum was being prepared for a wedding when we were there - I am sure it was quite lovely.

Thank Janet A
