    Puerto Rican reggaeton star Daddy Yankee is opening a museum in the U.S. Caribbean territory that will be dedicated to his life and the music that made him famous.

    The Daddy Yankee El Jefe Museum opens Friday in Plaza de Las Americas in San Juan and will be free of charge.

    The space of 8,000 square feet (743 square meters) will feature the history of reggaeton starting in 1991 as well as the artist's clothes, awards and memorabilia. The museum will remain open through January.

    Daddy Yankee made the announcement Thursday in an Instagram post. He recently set a record at the Coliseo of Puerto Rico with 10 shows scheduled in December.
