Great use of time

We only had one day in San Juan and spent time visiting the museum. For the price, it was a great learning experience and use of our precious time.

This museum of African Roots is no longer open. Although another museum ".El Museo de Las Americas" has an excellent exhibit however I am disappointed additional details on the Arican / Puerto Rican connection are not thoroughly explored .

This is a very interesting museum. Has a lot of race and culture history. Lots of stories. Its very enjoyable better when you go with the tour guide that explains everything.

This is a must do in old San Juan. The cost to visit this museum its less than 3 dollars, and the amount of information is huge. any scholar will spend few hours at this museum. The African heritage salon its very interesting. I love it.
