Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico
Before Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico opened, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico (Escuela Rafael M. de Labra, corner of Roberto H. Todd and Ponce de León, Santurce, 787/977-4030, 787/977-4031, or 787/977-4032, www.museocontemporaneopr.org, Tues.–Sat. 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Sun. noon–4 p.m., free) was the place to go for modern art.
Unfortunately, it’s a bit of a disappointment in comparison. But it’s worth a visit just to see the building, an atypical red-brick Georgian structure completed in 1918. Two small exhibition spaces feature rotating exhibits from the permanent collection. Wall text is in Spanish only.
