Imagine your event at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture. The historic architecture of the building is a spectacular backdrop to any event.

The Humboldt Park Receptory and Horse Stable is the oldest surviving building in Humboldt Park and a historic landmark. It was built in 1895 to house horses, landscape equipment and wagons. For many years it was left in disrepair until 2000, when the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture strategically decided to adaptively reuse and restore this beautiful structure to create a home for the only Puerto Rican Museum in the United States.  

Memories are Made Here: We hope you’ll experience the detail we put into creating the most memorable event. We do our best to make it hassle-free and connect you with vendors to help your vision become a reality.
