Overview
More
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.

Loved our visit to the museum. The building itself is beautiful and conducive to showing a variety of art. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the sculpture garden was a nice bonus. Well worth a visit.

This is a very nice art museum located close to the tourist areas in Condado. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Great place to visit if you end up looking for a respite from the rain and need a break from eating and drinking.

We kinda walked up on this place. It wasn't on our agenda but decided to stop. Upon entering it wasn't crowded. The art collection was small, so not a diversity of exhibits to see. We wondered in the back patio and saw the remains of...More

They have a great collection from puertorrican artists, specially graphic arts (serigraphs, posters...) and many more. The building is a beautiful and the gardens even more. They offer discounts for military personnel and others. Just ask.
