“Small Museum Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Eight small galleries containing eight eclectic collections, including art and cultural and natural history. A perfect spot to cool off in during a hot afternoon.

“Good exhibits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

well worth it even for locals seeking more knowledge of island history. The building and its surroundings are impressive, an expanded experience covering other aspects of PR history, culture and possibly geography would be welcomed. Ativities taking place compleent the exhibits..

Lovely museum in historic building. The docents are very helpful as much of the signage is in Spanish.

“Beautiful building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Interesting collection with a great deal on the history of the Americas. Not a lot in English but docents very helpful. The building itself is beautiful and, to add something, a nice coffee shop on the ground floor. Worth 2 hour visit.

“Beautiful architecture and courtyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Ducked in here on our segway tour to get out of the rain. This building is absolutely beautiful and the courtyard is massive. Had a great time just watching the rain fall as we are from the desert. Next time we will actually take a tour in of the actual museum.
