Wonderful small museum with 6-7 separate galleries. A very nice variety of paintings and media used. There is a coffee shop/snack shop in the building with the museum. The museum is a short walk from the fortress. We spent about 2 hr. in the museum and enjoyed the art and cultural expression. See this museum and the fortress in a single morning; fortress first; museum second - most galleries have AC!
An amazing museum. The José Alicea exhibit on right now is incredible. The folk art and history exhibits are great. Worth so much more than $6.
Cool galleries in here, it's pretty small so you won't be spending a lot of time here. But nevertheless it was an interesting hour there.
Very interesting museum in an old Spanish military base building. They have a great exhibition of the culture of PR, artist. Great little restaurant downstairs for tapas and other food. Also so close to the house of Ponce de Leon and the San Felipe El Morro Castle it makes it a very nice stop to seethe exhibit.
Catrinas festival was amazing!!
