Casa Canales Museum

This house was once the site of the short lived Puerto Rican Nationalist movement who claimed independence from the United States on October 30, 1950. While the revolutionaries were arrested, this museum stands in honor of the brief stage in Puerto Rican history.


There are tours of the house, as well as informative signs and plaques being located throughout the premises to teach visitors about the pieces and rooms. The tours, however, are given in Spanish. Exhibits feature information about the family as well as the town of Jayuya.
