  • One must see in Habana, spectacular collection of Napoleon’s belongings and furnitures.
  • I enjoyed it, nice collection. And even if you don't have much interest for Napoleon, the building itself and the view from it is worth seeing.
  • The entry is 3 cuc. The collection is really beautiful hence it’s worth a visit if you are a Napoleon fan or if you just like antique furniture etc. plus you have a great view over Havana!
  • ©dsa66503 The Museo Napoleónico (Napoleonic Museum) is located in a construction that was originally used as a home by Orestes Ferrara, one of the authors of the collection currently exhibited in the museum. It is a mansion inspired by a 16th century Renaissance Florentine palaceand built in the 1920s by architects Govantes and Cabarrocas. The mansion, located in the district of Vedado (Municipio Plaza de la Revolución) of Havana, was built in Italian marble, wrought iron and finest quality woods.
  • The Napoleon Museum is a very special place in the middle of La Habana. I highly recommend taking the guided visit to understand the history behind this crazy collection. It's a bit hard to find it so you might want to pin it on Google maps.
