  • We secaped the hot day and enjoyed the exhebition. But even more exciting was the chance to see the historic architecture.  more »
  • The Museum formed from a special collection of a fan of Napoleon. Very interesting because collector had correspondents in Europe on the lookout for sale of any object on the empire.

  • Unexpected opening for us was the Napoleonic Museum, we literally stumbled back from Revolution Square. Located in the four-storey building. An excellent Museum, genuine death masks of Napoleon, his personal belongings, items of Napoleon, a rich library, Dinnerware sets, household things and items other fine, rare and unique artifacts! Visiting Napoleon Museum-this is our great luck! Will be in Havana, choose a time and be sure to visit this Museum! You will not regret!

  • It seems that at the moment you can see sitting Napoleon. Well preserved Museum.

  • The collection of Napoleonic memorabilia is very rich, while not surprising hardly a European visitor. However the Museum is well worth a visit. This is a wonderful home, restored with his usual intelligence by Historiador de la Ciudad. You can breathe the air of richness of Havana in the early twentieth century. Exposure of objects and works of art is integrated perfectly in the rooms of the Palace and let you enjoy both (content and container) superbly. A dip is in European history that in Cuba. Not to be missed.
