Museo de las Américas
Learn about the historical and cultural development of Puerto Rico and the Americas at the Museo de las Américas. Located on the second floor of the Cuartel de Ballajá, the museum features four permanent exhibits and a number of temporary exhibits that highlight the region’s history, sociology, anthropology, and art in a thoughtful way.
 
The Basics
The Museo de las Américas uses a combination of historical artifacts, artwork, stories, and audiovisual displays to tell the story of its exhibits, including Folk Arts, the Indian in America, African Heritage, and the Conquest and Colonization. Special exhibits are held from time to time and often highlight folk art from contemporary regional and international artists.
 
Visit the museum independently, or as part of a San Juan sightseeing tour, and see attractions such as the Catedral de San Juan Bautista, El Morro, La Fortaleza, or Castillo San Cristóbal. Popular add-ons include a boat cruise, snorkel trip, drum workshop, or visit to the Bacardi Factory.
 
Things to Know Before You Go

  • Purchase your entry ticket at the gift shop on the first floor.
  • Not all exhibits include an English translation.
  • There are several cafés and a restaurant on the first floor.

How to Get There
The Museo de las Américas is located in historic Old San Juan, across from El Morro. From within Old San Juan, it’s best to walk or take the free trolley. From elsewhere in San Juan, a taxi or the bus is recommended.

When to Get There
The Museo de las Américas is open daily, except for Mondays, with a break for lunch during the week and more limited hours on weekends. Workshops on various forms of folk art are held on certain Saturdays. On the first Sunday of each month, local artists showcase and sell their art at the museum.
 
Cuartel de Ballajá
Built in 1864, the Cuartel de Ballajá was initially used as barracks for members of the Spanish armed forces and their families. It was converted to a military hospital during World War II. Today, the building is home to a library, dance school, and music school, in addition to the Museo de las Américas.
