Reviewed 12 August 2014

At first we thought, O well another old building which you can visit. On the last day we decided to look inside and it really surprised us. Beautiful decorated rooms and we also had a well speaking english guide, it was great to see. The tour lasted about an hour, because we looked long to every beautiful furniture and artefacts. A must!

This museum was my favorite stop at Havana. The beautiful sculptures it contains just takes your breath away. You will also see some interesting art and furniture. There is so much to see and take in. Regardless if how much you have got to spare, you have to a stop by.

Don't miss the throne room on your tour of this museum. It was intended for visits from the King of Spain, but sadly he never came. The Gold Room is where the governor of the city greeted his guests , gold furniture and delicate porcelain.
Only some of the rooms have been restored but it does give you a feel for the era

Just on the Plaza de Armas this museum is a "must see" even if you have just a short time to spare.
It's based around a central courtyard with rooms over two floors. The rooms are full of interesting furniture, art and ........... find time to go -you won't regret it.

This building houses El Museo de la Cuidad (the city museum). It has a fascinating, traditional architecture with a nice central courtyard with plants and statues. The rooms are all filled with historical artifacts, including art, furniture, clothing and spectacular chandeliers. A very nice place to visit! But don't plan to use the facilities unless you are fearless and not faint-of-heart! Then again, if you are searching for a memorable experience...
