The Sculpture Garden of the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico provides a diverse and fulfilling creative environment to the general public and forms an integral part of the Museum's permanent art collection exhibiting over a variety of contemporary sculptures by renowned Puerto Rican artists. As a non-profit institution committed to artistic awareness and cultural enrichment, the Sculpture Garden represents the very essence of the type of experience we provide our public on a daily basis. In addition to the inspiring sculpture collection, we are proud to offer an impressive botanical garden setting in the midst of Santurce, a bustling business and commercial area of San Juan. The serene atmosphere is produced by a dynamic landscape created for our visitors' enjoyment. A wide variety of tropical fruit trees, native trees, bushes, creeping plants, flowering plants and ferns totaling well over 100,000 in all dominate the overall landscape. Thousands of tropical orchids compliment this greenery with an energetic array of colors. This entire setting centers around a man-made pond which ties in all this vegetation and color with its dazzling lotus flowers and relaxing waterfalls, not to mention the dozens of brightly colored koi inhabiting the pond.
