The Museum of Our African Roots (Museo de Nuestra Raiz Africana) centered on the history of the African slaves in chronological order. It detailed specifics like where they originated from, their background and life style as well as their arrival to Puerto Rico.
Unfortunately, this museum is no longer open; however, the Museo de las Americas has incorporated many of Museo de Nuestra Raiz Africana's exhibits that are on display noted below.
In Cuartel de Ballaja's second floor one of the greatest museums in Puerto Rico holds a space for the diverse cultures of the Americas. Museo de las Americas--founded in 1992 by San Juan's famed and beloved archaeologist Ricardo Alegria--is keen on honoring the traditions, objects, and stories that make up the American continent.
This museum boasts four permanent exhibits: a) the Natives in the Americas, b) the African Legacy, c) Conquest and Colonization, and d) the Popular Arts. These carefully curated exhibits put on display a magnificent collection that briefly summarizes the "American experiences" throughout the centuries.
