Entrance fee was cheap and worth a visit. The exhibits were detailed in Spanish. Would have appreciated a small blurb in English. There were three levels including the basement, where the exit was located. The top floor displayed mostly artworks and was air conditioned. The ground floor held artifacts and memorabilia relating to Cuban history and war relics, not air... More

Timewise we only got to tour the first floor of the museum, but the arrangement of the Cuban history with artifacts was well done and informative. Museum was very reasonable-- I think 2 cuks ( equivalent to 2 US dollars.) a nice stopping- off point-- and a relief from the heat.

Great European and Cuban paintings and a fair amount of sculpture. A small pre-contact section dowstairs. Inexpensive and worth every bit of it.

In 30 minutes you can whiz through and see the highlights. A glimpse into the rich Bacardi family and some odd collections of stuff. Beautiful building. Fun.

The top floor displays a rich collection of Cuban paintings and sculpture covering the whole history of Cuba. The ground floor holds historical artefacts and even a tiny international archeology section.

I wasn't expecting much from this museum given the pieces on show were of Emilio's personal collection form his travels around the world but I have to say I was amazed by the collection. There you will find lovely paintings from European artist, pieces related to the Cuban history and Egyptian artefacts; there was even a shrunk head. Incredible! The... More

This museum is splendid. Depending on how you look at it it could also be a refined family home, an art gallery, a social club headquarters or more...very eclectic to say the least both in its architectonic style and also in its functionality. Full of tourists and locals alike, it is a great place to learn more about history and... More

Art Gallery, Historical and Anthropological Museum that we visited and appreciated. All displays are in spanish but we managed to get the gist of what was being described. A nice place to retreat from busting Santiago and take a look at a wider perspective, laid out much as you would expect a museum and a reasonable price to enter, I... More
