    For us, it's a museum or a Palace, for the former owners, it was just her house. The style and the fashion which were set up by people who can afford it time according to. There is an impression of what wealth of sugar has given the island and refers to the resulting cultural boom of the country. The guide that is included in the ticket price, was very good. To reach the Habana Libre on foot.

    Great museum with various works of art. Cuban collection was more interesting than the universal one. The restaurant is so so and the bathroom lacks water or paper (general issue in Cuba) so come prepared!

    This is the building with international works. You cannot take photos inside and entrance is pretty expensive for Cuba; especially since it's in CUCs/Cuban convertible pesos for foreigners.

    Fascinating museum. You are not allowed to take pictures inside. Each floor of the museum is a different era.

    Houses a wide collection of old artworks from around the world. The more modern Cuban art collection is on display in another building a few blocks away on Trocadero y Agramonte.
