Overview

More than just an art museum, Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico hosts concerts and festivals as well. The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR), a non-for-profit organization, was inaugurated on July 1, 2000, as a legacy for the Puerto Rican people. The mission of the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico is to enrich the lives of its diverse audiences by making accessible and promoting the knowledge, appreciation, and enjoyment of visual arts from Puerto Rico and the world. The MAPR engages diverse communities to facilitate learning experiences about the visual arts through: the growth of a well-researched permanent collection exemplifying significant and representative examples of Puerto Rican art from the sixteenth century to the present; a dynamic program of exhibitions supported by engaging and exciting educational and cultural programs that collectively deepen the understanding of the role of the visual arts in the human experience and contribute to the creation of a curatorial legacy; documentation, research, interpretation, preservation, and conservation of the collection and the visual arts patrimony of Puerto Rico; and alliances with local, regional, and international museums and institutions to advance the knowledge of, access to, and understanding of the visual arts of the world.

Not a large place, but full of native artist work and varying exhibits. There gift store is small but I was able to purchase reasonably priced numbered prints from local artists. Plan to spend about an hour or so, plus the gift shop.

Lots of powerful pieces. Not sure that I "liked" them or even fully understood them, but I am glad to have seen them. Well worth spending a couple of hours wandering around this.

My daughter and I loved this museum. My favorite type of art museum - compact so you are not overwhelmed, containing art local to Puerto Rico. The galleries were organized by theme, so the art was very diverse in each gallery - something for everyone....More

This museum had much more modern art than I was expecting, which is not something I really appreciate well. The sculpture garden was pretty, but we spend through the museum because it just wasn't that interesting to us. There's not much else nearby, but easily...More

The building was beautiful and the artwork was interesting. It was not crammed with items. The sculptures and garden was pleasant to stroll through. We were able to get here from Isla Verde via bus. Walked to the Mercado Santurce after our visit.
