Caguas Museum

San Juan is not the only part of Puerto Rico with a history. While linked with Puerto Rico as a whole, Caguas has a unique history, including independent tribes, struggles, architecture, and economic history. Explore this museum and see why people of Caguas are proud of their heritage.


There are six main sections in the museum that center around different aspects of Caguas. The first explores the settlement of the Americas as a whole; focusing on the native tribes of Caguas, followed by the Spanish Colonization. The Second Section features the archaeological history of Caguas, as separate from Puerto Rico. The Third Section looks at the reign of the indigenous Caguas people, followed by the Spanish rule that led to the modern culture. The fifth takes a look at early Caguas, from 1775 until 1898. Finally, the Sixth section explores modern Caguas and its future.
