About the Museum
The Ponce Museum of Art connects the community with the wealth of Western art and its creators, from the 14th century to the present. It invites discovery, stimulates curiosity and encourages dialogue.
After touring nine countries, 16 museums-including the Tate Britain in London, the Prado National Museum in Madrid, the Belvedere in Vienna, the Phoenix Art Museumin Arizona and the Contemporary Art Museum of Monterrey in Mexico -and to be admired by more than 2.8 million people, the permanent collection of the Ponce Museum of Art returned to its home for the reopening of the Museum in November 2010. With a much larger and improved house to house the 4,500 pieces, it is now possible to display twice as many pieces. The 820 works of art that are presented cover a period of 30 centuries and originated in Europe, America and Africa, the three cultures that have shaped Puerto Rico.
