  • One of the most important museums of the Cuban capital, contains ornaments, furniture and pieces of the Camargo family and the Gomez Mena. At the entrance of the House there is a star of David, I asked the Guide and other workers and nobody could give me an explanation that Hebrew symbol embedded in the floor of one of the most Catholic families who had been in Cuba before the revolution. The House must make some tweaks and some maintenance work.

  • The Museum is located in Vedado, is a mansion of the local nobility, who had gone out of the country after the revolution. The interiors amaze with luxury. Unfortunately, the room allowed only with guides, in this sense, the inspection is short on time. Pictures do also prohibit (specifically required for this money doing photography almost impossible). Visit recommend only as part of walking through Vedado.
