The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR) strives to offer a wide range of services to our visitors. In an effort to expand the amenities offered by the MAPR and in order to foster an appreciation of the visual arts throughout our community, the MAPR has developed several partnerships with entities such as the Consejo Estatal sobre Deficiencias en el Desarrollo (CEDD) and the Puerto Rico Assistive Technology Program (PRATP) in pursuit of a wider scope of accessibility and inclusion. The MAPR aspires to be a model of a cultural institution that fully achieves inclusion through the design of special tours, the planning and offering an educational program of artistic and cultural activities that encourage the appreciation of the arts, stimulate creativity and artistic sensibility, promote inclusion, enrich the education of students with developmental disabilities, and extend accessibility to electronic media.
