For nearly 70 years, the Museum of History, Anthropology and Art has served as one of the institutions that has contributed the most to the cultural heritage of the island. Its collection of Puerto Rican art—one of the most complete—is an invaluable resource for the study of our arts. It is also the custodian of important collections of international graphic works and Puerto Rican archaeology.
In its 72 years, the Archaeological Research Center (Centro de Investigaciones Arqueólogicas) has consistently carried out its mission of studying and defending Puerto Rico’s Indigenous and historical cultural heritage. It is because of the efforts devoted to this significant project, initially led by Dr. Ricardo Alegría and later by Dr. Chanlatte Baik, that we have been able to assemble the largest and most important archaeological collection in the Caribbean.
