Microcars and Bubble cars played an important role in the history of modern transportation in Europe, the USA, some Latin American and Asian countries, and Australia. These small, fuel-efficient, vehicles, many with three wheels, and accommodating two to four passengers, were powered by small engines that ranged between 49cc to 700cc in size.
Puerto Rico Microcar Museum’s permanent collection of 28 cars from England, France, Italy, Germany, China, Taiwan, Japan, the US, and even Puerto Rico will definitely wow you! You will learn about and explore classic Bubble cars like the BMW Isetta, the Messerschmitt KR 200, and the Heinkel Kabine, along with other rare microcars like the Cub Commuter and the Bubu 501. The single-passenger, Peel P50, featured in Britain’s Ripley’s Believe it or not! Museum occupies a unique place in our collection.
On display, you will get to enjoy one of the best book collections on microcars along with era memorabilia and other microcar artifacts. The Microcar Bibliophile Book and cold non-alcoholic beverages are available for sale at the gift shop.
Along with your visit to Old San Juan, Luquillo Beach, and El Yunque Rain Forest, make the Microcar Museum of Puerto Rico one of your top destinations while on the island.
Some of the cars in the collection have been featured in TV comedies and films. Over the years these cars have earned a huge following of fans and enthusiasts throughout the world.
