Many concerts and festivals occur in the massive courtyard of this building through out the year.

Post-MARIA Update (Sunday, 10 december 2017) We still don't have power, and our internet service at home (which is "the office") comes and goes. In the meantime, we are posting updates to our Facebook page as we find out more info.

We are attempting to update articles on our site to indicate the state of a given attraction, place, or tour. The typical visitor to Old San Juan visits the major "touristy" historical sites in the old city, including the forts (El Morro and San Cristobal), La Princesa, La Forteleza, and the Cathedral, to name a few.

There is a room dedicated to Santos de Puerto Rico, and another on The African Heritage. Located on the second floor of the El Cuartel Ballaja, which is just across from El Morro.

Also featured is a wonderful special exhibit on the Indian in the Americas. This structure built in 1800, was a naval station and then home to the Spanish military following the Spanish-American War.

Visitors will find a few galleries with paintings and decorative arts. Casa Blanca was built in 1521 as the first "fort" in Old San Juan.

The exhibits change throughout the year, and they do close between exhibits. This "strong-house" was lived in by the descendants of Ponce de Leon.

There are a number of rooms of paintings and other works of art (paintings and decorative) from Puerto Rican artisans of the 18th – 21st centuries.

This museum is a fun, air-conditioned stop for kids.

These two museums are located in the same building.

It is one of the oldest buildings in Old San Juan, built in the 18th century.

In fact, our 3-part walking tour will guide you past all of these places.
