If you are interested in a few old string instruments and drums, in a few rooms, with no actual music involved, then this is the place for you! The architecture of the building is actually more interesting. At least it was free.

This is a traditional museum with things to look at and maybe read. A bit disappointing that there wasn't more sound and music to sample. However, it was well worth walking around the beautiful old house that holds the exhibits.

The museum is quaint. Seeing the history and the feel of the music was quite interesting. The set up could be a little better. Informative, staff is friendly.

The museum could be much better! The house architecture is so amazing and the backyard is beautiful. But the museum is poor in information. We have a lot potencial in this theme, Puerto Rico have the best musicians in the world, they should have a...More
