Museo de Arte de Ponce

2325 Boulevard Luis A. Ferré Aguayo, Ponce, 00717, Puerto Rico

San Juan is considered Puerto Rico’s hub for museums and artists, but Ponce’s Museo de Arte is certainly a cultural highlight on the southern coast of the island. Its collection, initiated by former governor Luís A. Ferré, is eclectic and includes European and Asian art, but its prize paintings are Frederic Lord Leighton’s Flaming June (seen on postcards and prints around the island) and Francisco Oller’s La Ceiba de Ponce, which depicts a massive ceiba tree that still grows in the city.
