  • This was a small gem in the center of town. Great museum that deals with the music of Puerto Rico especially from the city of Ponce.  more »
  • As a musician I was really excited to visit this museum in Ponce and was completely crushed when we arrived and it was closed for unknown reasons. The guard at the back shooed us away and shouted "Clo...  more »

  • 28 June 2018 1. Due to budget constraints from the recovery effort of Maria there are currently only 2 official tour guides in the town of Poncé to cover their four museums. This means that 2-3 of them are closed most of the days to save on operating costs. 2. If you want to visit any of the museums in Poncé it would be wise to call ahead and setup a time and day so you can be sure that their is a guide available to let you in, show you around and give you a good tour. Also, there isn’t any A/c so be sure to wear cool clothing and bring a rag or fan to help you stay cool in the summer months. 3. The Music Museum in Poncé is terrific and, if you are fortunate enough to land Mr. Rodriguez as your guide, you will be truly edifies by the boys of knowledge he will share with you. 4. Be certain to stay to the end of the tour where you will get to see (IMO) the finest collection of PR Quatros assembled in one room by the foremost artist and PR craftsman Carmelo Martéll. 5. If you can, ask to see the courtyard. It is amazing and they would like to start utilizing it fore music events and play productions. -Don’t walk through the ground brush though, it has tons of sticky burs. However, you may find a mango or passion fruit if yer lucky. We considered this the “gift shop”.
  • This museum is one of the victims of the local economic crisis and budget cuts. Great content on all musical rhythms Ponce and Puerto Rico has brought to the world. But not enough budget for good guides, AC or to keep things running well. It is also normally close. Still would recommend to visit the place due to its historic and cultural content.
