My wife, son, his girlfriend, and I walked between the two forts that are major attractions in San Juan. We hit the Museo de Las Americas, where we spent the next hour and a half, primarily in two halls. The building itself is a spectacle, with its huge open courtyard. One hall had exhibits on indigenous peoples of the Americas and was excellent. The statuary created by an ethnologist who visited the tribes in person was striking, and adding to the experience were the collections of cultural artifacts for each tribe. Another hall had diverse exhibits on folk arts in the Americas, very artfully and informatively done. We arrived at this hall at closing time, but the guard graciously invited us in, with several other people. We stayed about 1/2 hour and enjoyed talking with him. There were other halls, such as one with art made from trash, but we did not find them any distraction (ahem) from viewing the two halls just noted.
