Went to the museum with great expectations, unfortunately all the exhibits were closed. Did walk around the building, which has a gorgeous courtyard.

Adults will like this infinitely more than kids or teens. The collection here is small but interesting. Remember that it's contemporary and keep your mind open. Building was clean and affordable. Perfect too for a rainy-day adventure if you can't hit the beach.

This Art Museum is one of my favorites! The Building itself is beautiful. It used to be a school and was converted into the museum (the school is now next door). The architecture is honestly really beautiful. It has a nice collection of modern art....More

We explored this museum after walking here from the Puerto Rico Museum of Art, about a mile away in the same Santurce neighborhood. The Contemporaneo has several rotating exhibitions at any one time, and a number of the ones we caught this time were terrific....More

This is a small art museum, well worth a visit. We came by on a Saturday when there was a wedding being held in the courtyard. This added to the experience, as we could view the wedding from the surrounding hallways which opened to the...More

A nice collection of artists especially Spanish and Latin American. Fine location and parking garage. Walk around the area to see impressive sculptures.

The museum represents a breath of fresh air in an otherwise tainted community, where cultural and social differences clash constantly; these clashes make the museum necessary, however. The building has been beautifully refurbished and the personnel in the galleries are all attentive, yet unobtrusive. I...More

An excelent evening. Easy to find if you are not familiar with the area, parking on site and very helpful employees. This was a school turned into a Museum...beautiful construction. I did not see handicapped access, but I did see elevators!
