Here you can find art about Puerto Rican culture. When I went I was surprised to learn about the history of my country through art. They also offer Symphony concerts and other activities. I recommend that you hire a guide because this way is easier to understand the exhibitions.

This great museum is located near the "Condado" area of San Juan, Puerto Rico, relatively near the coast. The exterior follows a simple classical style, with nice orange tiled roofs. Inside, there is an interesting collection of Puerto Rican art, from religious 17th century paintings to modern, contemporary art. One particular painting called "El Velorio" depicts a scene back in the 1800s in the Puerto Rican countryside. A young child died, and the painting shows the "celebration" of it (that the child has passed away to a better place). That was back then... but it's an impressive work of art. Apart from the big collection that the museum owns, there is also a kid's area filled with four interactive computers, a small indoor playground, and other whacky, fun things. The museum has a small, quaint theater. There is always an interesting temporary exhibition taking place! Near the main entrance there's a nice shop for mementos and souvenirs. The museum also contains a large garden in the back, a great place to sit back and relax. It has some outdoor sculptures. The museum gives summer art classes, very useful! This is a great attraction!!
