As the first elected governor of Puerto Rico, Luis Muñoz Marín enjoys somewhat the same position in Puerto Rican history that George Washington does for the mainland United States. Which makes this museum, a 30-minute drive south of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s “Mount Vernon”. A documentary acquaints visitors with the governor’s life and achievements before they walk through Marín's study and library, and view his extensive art collection. Later most take the chance to relax in his tropical garden and gazebo. There’s an historic archive; the shop and the grounds surrounding the foundation were restored in 2014.
