“Fabulous collection, beautifully presented”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I never knew there were so many great 20th century painters in Cuba. Also loved seeing the school kids involved in creative programs based here.

“Great building but the art didn't do it for me”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The building is modern and well designed, but it could do with air conditioning - I can't believe that paintings fare well in that heat and humidity. There was a variety of art on show, but I found relatively few of the paintings and other artwork to be particularly interesting.

“Well laid out and interesting”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

You could spend quite a number of hours in this museum, it is well laid out , you can see the influence of European artists, e.g. Picasso, Gauguin on the Cuban artists. Our only issue was it was so hot, not sure if it's a;ways like that or that the a/c had broken
Well worth a visit

“Nice introduction to Cuban art, would help if information provided in English.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Small charge for admission. Coat check mandatory and the woman insisted on a tip :).

Introduced me to some Cuban artwork that I enjoyed. 3rd floor was the best. Too bad the information sheets in each section were not provided in English considering the numerous international visitors.

“De Cuba location”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The museum of Cuban Art near the Museo de Revolution was superb. The contemporary art on the second floor is superb along with the interactive mock up of the Cuban 5 Prison conditions. Experience how they live yourself in solitary. Disturbing and thought provoking. The Classical 3rd floor was not my cup of tea.
