Founded in 2001, the museum features exhibitions celebrating Puerto Rican arts and culture in the historic Humboldt Park Stables and Receptory.
Visitors enter the museum through the dramatic brick archway of the original carriage receptory into a magnificent brick courtyard with mosaic artwork depicting the island of Puerto Rico and many of its cultural elements. The courtyard is surrounded on all sides by Queen Anne architectural features. Each room in the stables has been transformed into part of a fully functional museum, including two galleries, performance spaces, and arts classrooms.
