Museo de los Santos mission is to establish an independent, self-sustaining museum dedicated to the preservation,
research, education and exhibition of the tradition of ‘Santos de Palo’ or the ‘Household Saints of Puerto Rico’.
Join our fundraising campaign to purchase
our new location in the Santurce Arts District!
We have just acquired this building at 1673 Ave. Ponce de Leon as our permanent home for Museo de los Santos in the center of San Juan's vibrant Santurce Arts District.
This was accomplished through a non-interest-bearing loan from one of our supporters - but MUST BE REPAID WITHIN TWO YEARS - so we need to raise $295,000 by September 6, 2021 to fund acquisition and renovation.
All fundraising and administrative efforts during this initial fundraising are run by volunteers who are dedicated to establishing the permanent museum.
Any contributions made to our building fund will go 100% toward repaying the interest-free loan and renovation of the space into our museum and cultural center.
We have already installed electric service and meter pending connection to the interior breaker panel. Due to cover-19 lockdown, water connections are still pending. We received our construction permit (see photo) and domolition began on May 18, 2020 (see photos below).
Our ultimate vision for the museum to become a permanent home for Museo de los Santos, plus a cultural center with gallery & exhibition space, areas for conferences, seminars, performance and video arts.
Your support will help create a community-based arts center and permanent home for Museo de los Santos.
Donations in any amount to reach our goal can be made
