Museum Of Puerto Rican Music

While music may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Puerto Rico, the fact is that the island has developed a unique musical culture that is separate from the rest of the Caribbean. The mix of Caribbean, African, Native, Spanish, and American musical tradition have helped shape Puerto Rico's, independent musical culture. Learn for yourself how this culture formed and how prevalent it still is.


Guests will be able to explore and hear some of the most popular Puerto Rican music while at the museum, including both modern and classical music. If you are a fan of music but find yourself struggling to name a Puerto Rican music legend, you may want to stop by and broaden your knowledge.
