  • 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.
  • It is one of the most beautiful places in the capital. Has an incredible art collection coming from diferente ages and artist. It's a really awesome place to visit.
  • 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.
