Well made figures of wellknown persons such as Hemingway and some Cuban dancers, singers and boxers. Very small but well worth the 1 cuc entry fee

It's the only wax museum you'll find in Cuba. And I say this because usually you get to this Monument City from somewhere else and you're thinking of going to another city in a couple of days. Well, you won't find a place like this...More
