The Museo de las Americas is one of San Juan’s most popular tourist attractions, and for great reason. It offers a comprehensive overview of Puerto Rican and Latin American culture. It also has an impressive collection of artifacts and objects that preserve the history of the Island’s first inhabitants. Indigenous cultures are celebrated for their resilience and accomplishments, while other exhibits examine the effects of slavery and colonization.
The museum houses three permanent collections and temporary exhibits focused on preserving and promoting the culture that is the heritage of Puerto Rico and the Americas and a solid dedication to the local community. The Museum’s permanent exhibitions include Folk Arts in the Americas, Our African Heritage, and Conquest and Colonization.
To experience a truly experiential and educational trip, make your way for the Museo de las Americas, located in the historic Cuartel de Ballaja, which was used for military barracks in Spanish colonial days.
