Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (The Museum of Art of Puerto Rico)
Valuable temporary and permanent collections with a multimedia art gallery that you must visit, no matter what!
Example of Puerto Rican art.
One of the 13 buildings that formed the Municipal Hospital medical complex in 1920, has been converted into a national and international example of Puerto Rican art: The ‘Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico’, which is located in the district of Santurce and opened its doors in the year 2000 with artistic works in its permanent collection ranging from the 16th century to today, although the successive expansions have added more temporary exhibition rooms, educational workshops, research programmes, and even interaction with the public in a multimedia art gallery that you can not miss. The Museum is located in an idyllic enclave which is formed by a large 'Jardín Botánico Escultórico' (Botanical/Sculptural Garden), and is home to 15 outdoor sculptures by Puerto Rican artists, more than 160,000 plants and 26 species of trees that surround its artificial pond with Koi fish and aquatic plants.
