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.

“Roaming for beauty”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had such a great time traveling about the island and experiencing some of the great treasures. San Juan and Old San Juan have more artistic riches than one would expect. It is riddled with stunning beauty both hanging on the walls and in it's own designs. Worth a stop.

“Boring”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Not usually my cup of tea, but the exhibits were not put out nor advertised very well. I'd advise not going even during it's free time

“Unusual and worth the visit”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This was not what I was expecting and so I was completely blown away during my 2 hour visit to the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. It really gave me a sense of the culture of this island and its vibrant art scene.
