Upgrading the exhibitions after upgrading the outdoor painting. The museum is the center of Vieques social justice and has a good book store on the resistance and access to local artists and talent.

We visited the museum twice while there and loved the views, and the staff at the museum were so fun and kind! Great place for pictures and history, as well as art.

You don't need to spend a lot of time here, but it is worth seeing some of the history between Vieques and the United States. There is a history between the military and the island similar to the one between the Navy and Culebra that is worth learning about. Talk to the staff at the entrance to the museum if... More

We enjoyed the view but there really isn't much else there. I'm a history buff but the information presented is minimal. You'll learn about the dispute between the locals and US Navy but not much else of interest. Worth going for the view if time allows but not worth any sacrifice of precious beach time.

These guys are fun ... we went to Fortin Conde de Mirasol as our very last adventure before heading off to drop our Jeep back at the rental office. We were looking for the relic of the ancient 4000-year-old man that was found on Vieques a few years ago. But they had lent him to another museum for a while... More

"Without firing a short, we defeated the US Navy." Go to read about the local people's sad but ultimately triumphant history with the US Navy, which took over the island and moved all the residents inland in the 1940s, leaving undetonated bombs throughout their homeland. Also great views of "Town."

Great views from this fort. We thought the fort and museum would feature the Spanish History, however it focuses on the actions of the US Navy and it's usage of the island. Very interesting included some unknown facts to us. Under President Bush senior, they were thinking of relocating all the residents to St Croix so they could continue military... More

Last day on the island and we decided to visit the old fort. Used more as a prison than a defensive fort. Included in the prison roll call were 25 Dominican Freedom Fighters who were imprisoned here....they lasted about 3 months (no one knows for sure how they died)...but they became martyrs and are celebrated each year here on Vieques,...
