“Amazing stained glass ceiling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

The stained glass ceiling in the central portico is stunning. Do yourself a favour and stop for a break in the restaurant. Some lovely balcony tables overlooking the street

“A must see if you love art!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Great building and an amazing collection of Cuba art. The a/c doesn't work very well, so be prepared to sweat a bit.....but totally worth it!!

“Beautiful art inside a beautiful communist inspired building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Great place to spend a morning in havana. The building is a work of art in itself and is a clear reflection of the communist control of the part.
The artworks were fantastic and very well presented throughout the building

“a must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This museum has a collection of the finest Cuban artwork. I had limited time but could have spent hours at this museum. The sad part is the government doesn't repair the air conditioner. It is hot and somewhat humid inside the museum. I can only imagine the damage to the artwork. Don't miss this museum.

“Incredible Cuban art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

I only did the building with the Cuban art in as I was so blown away with the paintings etc I didn't want to see anything else, plus the day I went the air conditioning was broken. it says no photos but to be honest the staff are mainly chatting so you can defiantly take a few! Also there was a very noisy children's show going on in the foyer when I was there but if you can screen all that out the art itself is just incredible - I wish there were more postcards/guidebooks etc available
