  • The entrance is 5 CUC or 8 if you visit both this and the Cuban art museum. The building is impressive and the works of art are in very good conditions.
  • Go for the one day bus tour in Old and New Havana!
  • It s a great place with international history
  • A well decorated and huge enough museum where you can see many paintings and sculptures from Cubans' artists. There are some paintings and sculptures from the rest of the world too. The entrance price is 5CUC per person. They do not allow you to have your backpack with you during the tour so you can leave it for free to a lady next to the entrance. It is closed on Mondays.
  • Just alot of great art in a lovely space. A nice escape from the intensity of havana.
