We visited here on the week of February 12 to 19, 2017 and found some of the art quite interesting. They had quite a few pieces from Greece and Rome. A local Artist had some really interesting mirrors on display with pictures of people in the mirrors that looked so real, if you take a photograph of only the mirror... More

We bought tickets for both the Cuban and International exhibits, but found out the International is in another building and walk away. Ask for directions when you buy your ticket. We ended up running out of time to see both. Fantastic exhibits!!!

This very notion of leaving my purse with money, camera, passports ect.... Made me nervous but all did turn out ok. No picture taking allowed. Some of the strangest art I have ever seen. Was air conditioned.

I visited the museum in October 2016 with friends. The stained glass ceiling over the staircase is truly beautiful. You're not allowed to take photos in the galleries but it was good to see the collection of art in Havana.

Right next to the Presidential Palace museum and free entry. A modern well designed art exhibition. We loved the visiting photo exhibition.

We had a pleasant visit and had the benefit of a young man who had studied Art Appreciation, to show us around. It mad e the visit very fulfilling. I believe the standard of art was very high.

This very modern architecture allows for a fluid survey of Cuban art from the 19th century to the present. Start from the top floor and wind yourselves down from the historical genre art through the revolutionary period to the very accomplished abstract contemporary art.

The gallery is newly restored and now shows only Cuban art. The rest has been moved to another museum. This is wonderful as there are now 4 or 5 floors of excellent modern art by Cuban artists. My one complaint is that there is little art by Cuban women artists, fewer than 5 among the hundreds there.There is now a... More

In the US if you go to an art museum like this, often the staff in the galleries will hush visitors or ask them to get off phones or stop their children from running around. Not here. It was a bit chaotic. At one point there was this obnoxious man (probably American, and I'm American and I know we can... More
