The Ponce Art Museum is without a doubt a gem in the Caribbean. It has one of the most outstanding collections from Frederick Lord Byron with the masterpiece of the Flaming June. Recently renovated it hosts several special expositions throughout the year. Another key masterpiece is "King Arthur's Sleep" which takes a complete wall.

In addition to the paintings there is a sculpture garden with a fresh water pond and a highly rated restaurant inside the facilities. A visit to this museum should take a couple of hours at a leisurely pace. the museum also counts with laboratory facilities as well as restoration experts and is very highly respected internationally.

About an hour by car from San Juan, this museum is outstanding for its collection and not being located in a big city. The structure itself is beautiful and open, and its art is well-known throughout the world.

I don't pretend to be an art critic, but this Ponce museum has an interesting collection and is located in a wonderful, modern building south of the city center. There are many pieces from Puerto rican artists as well as many European pieces. A worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours.
