Fundación Luis Muñoz Marín Trujillo Alto, PR
historical site

Year Established: 1980

Created in 1980 as a non-profit organization, the Luis Muñoz Marín Foundation has helped preserve and promote the work, values, spirit, and vision of Puerto Rico’s first elected chief executive.

Located in the heart of the metropolitan area, on the grounds of the Muñoz-Mendoza family’s four-acre residence in rural San Juan, the foundation offers visitors access to countless photographs, memorabilia, exhibits, and other archival materials of historical importance.

Nearly one million documents make up the Historical Archive, including those pertaining to Muñoz’s private and public life, through which half a century of Puerto Rico’s history can be relived.

Muñoz’s modest and cozy family home, shared with wife Inés María Mendoza from 1946 until his death in 1980, evokes the values of simplicity and humility that characterized the governor’s life. It now serves as museum and tribute to one of the island’s most beloved figures.

Rounding out the experience is the twelve-acre Parque Inés María Mendoza, an arboretum surrounding the estate which extends the foundation’s spirit of preservation to the environment.
