  • We really enjoyed ourselves here. It was quite the experience and I'm glad that we went. The check in process was pretty efficient and informative. The guides throughout the various floors were helpful. We did get on one floor where the woman was a bit aggressive, but we made a good time out of it either way. I hate that we missed the smooth jazz in the gardens because of the rain.
  • Exhibits with both English and Spanish explanations are well curated, a variety of different styles and time periods are portrayed. I enjoyed the focus on contemporary art that showcases the diversity of Puerto Rican artists experiences! As a bonus the museum is very well air conditioned which makes it even more of a treat on a hot day. Very kind museum staff eager to discuss the art in more detail. Grounds and garden sculptures are also worth seeing. Parking is near the corner of the museum in the garage.
