Likewise, we have added to our online offer, informative capsules in which we invite the public to learn about the collection of the Museum, fun workshops on how to make simple crafts and Bomba classes, for all enthusiasts of Puerto Rican rhythms”, said Alejandra Peña Gutiérrez, Executive Director of the Museum.
