Municipio Autónomo de San Juan – Website institucional del Municipio de San Juan de Puerto Rico

Mission

To enrich, preserve and disseminate the history, artistic riches and cultural heritage of the Capital City, offering a panoramic vision of the development of San Juan and citizens´ contribution from its inception until the present.

The building was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century in the market square of the Capital City of Puerto Rico. This place was famous, not only because of the variety of goods that could be acquired, but for the cafes where gatherings were held among the intellectuals of the time.

It is a neoclassical style structure. It has a rectangular shape that is characterized by two large naves in its west and east wings which have been converted into exhibition halls and in a small theater. In the north wing there is a multi-purpose room for workshops and activities. In the center it has a large interior courtyard, surrounded by magnificent archways (arcs).

Its rooms have hosted both national and international visual artists of great prestige, as well as novice artists that represent the latest art trends. Similarly, it has hosted craftsmen and social/cultural institutions.

Temporary exhibitions stand out during its early years, whose loans were coordinated with overseas institutions.

Exhibits on different historical and cultural topics organized by the museum staff are highlighted as well.

In December of 2000, and after a thorough restoration and renovation, the San Juan Museum re-focused its mission toward the dissemination of knowledge and study of aspects linked to the City of San Juan.

Likewise, it opened the exhibition on the History of San Juan.

The San Juan Museum is the custodian of the Municipality´s Collection of Public Art.

 

Paintings, photographs, posters, wooden-saints carvings, sculptures and archaeological objects make up the collection of the San Juan Museum.

Outstanding artworks include: the painting of Governor Don Ramón Castro, by Puerto Rican painter José Campeche, sketch of “El Velorio” by Francisco Oller, and Luis Paret of Alcazar´s Self-portrait.
