Insightful and well laid out

Worth a visit just to see the Tom Sanchez exhibition on the top floor- very thought provoking about Cuba's future and excellently done.

Huge place, I had a blast and bought cheap copies of famous masterpieces. The building itself is amazing and the area is beautiful. Can walk to Capitolio from there

If you really love art, don´t miss the chance to go and visit this unique sanctuary for Cuban art. Unlike the Universal Art building, this one is the one not to be missed. I mean, if you are visiting Cuba, why not check out what Cuban art has to offer? This is definitely the place to go. Wonderful paintings all... More

I visited in early May - ground floor exhibit rooms were closed as was half of the top floor. I wasn't told this when handed over my money but wished I had been. There was only 1 floor of artwork and the rest (statues, ornaments) seem to be replicas of originals. Really disappointing and left after an hour. Reading reviews... More

The place itself it's beautiful. And the art works. But the really interesting thing to notice here is the number of Che Guevara's representations versus Jesus Christ's ones. It really gets you thinking... ;)

A history of Cuba reflected through a wide range of contemporary art. Best with a guide who can provide color behind the evolution of the collections but definitely can be enjoyed on your own. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours with a guided tour and additional time on your own.

Both museums have excellent collections. But especially the one with not cuban art was a marvellous experience. Just the Palace in it self was gourgous. The modern museum was okay, but a lot of old cuban art was not on display.
