Museo de Antropología, Arte e Historia (The Museum of Anthropology, Art and History)

Since 1951.

Long before foreigners came to the island and even before the colonization began, Puerto Rico was inhabited by cultures with ancestral roots that can be seen nowadays with free access in the 'Museo de Antropología, Arte e Historia de la Universidad' in the district of 'Rio Piedras'. Apparently, there isn't another collection of Antillean archaeology in the whole Caribbean like the one preserved in this museum, which opened in 1951. Its exhibition of colourful paintings, ceramics, numismatics and jewellery are attached to interesting researches which are carried out at sites in Puerto Rico, like the one that brought the remains of the pre-Columbian Taíno culture to light for the first time; a culture which made their tools for hunting, fishing and decoration out of bone, stone and snail shells, as displayed by their jewellery and ornaments.
