Museo de Antropología, Historia y Arte

The Museo de Antropología, Historia y Arte (Museum of Anthropology, History and Art) provides another important piece of the Puerto Rican puzzle. Artifacts created by the indigenous Taíno are joined by other pre-Columbian pieces to serve as a reminder of the island’s long history and diverse roots. This has been called one of the most important archaeological collections in the Caribbean.

It’s a big conceptual leap to the other major component of the museum: paintings, prints and drawings which show the development of Puerto Rican art from the 18th century onwards. All up this is a modestly-sized institution, and it won’t take you long to do a circuit.

Practical Info

The museum is located within the University of Puerto Rico whose distinctive clock tower is a local landmark. Take some time to explore the grounds of the university, as well as the surround Río Piedras district.
