The Museo de la Música Puertorriqueña showcases the development of Puerto Rican music. The displays show how Puerto Rican music started and how it has developed over the years. It includes memorabilia of prominent musicians, composers and performers, and musical instruments associated with the three main ethnic groups influencers of the Puerto Rican music:Taíno Indians, Spanish, and African.
In addition, it showcases musical instruments that were played in the romantic danza genre, the favorite music of 19th-century Puerto Rican high society, as well as the more African-inspired bomba and plena styles.
It is located in the former downtown residence of Juan Eugenio Serrallés and his family, owners of Destilería Serrallés and producers of the Don Q rum.
