One of Havana's many hidden gems
Mar 2020
Excellent museum, building and pleasant gardens. Fascinating how Napoleon captured the imagination of the Cuban 19th century wealthy, ideas of independence, sovereignty and a collecting mindset so that these historic artefacts were not lost. Well worth a visit.

A hidden gem!

Who would have thought to find such an incredible Napoleonic collection in Havana? The Italian Renaissance-style villa hosting it is truly impressive: an elegant treasure chest.

Interesting Place.
Feb 2020
Good to see this and go through it. We grew up the American version of history when it come to Cuba. Well there are two sides to every story. My only two complaints are 1) that the 18yr old military guards on the grounds could be a little more pleasant 2) you are not allowed to sit outside on the grounds near the little airplanes. Not like we could steal them and fly them out of there. Just a little paranoid this place.

Beautiful gem
Nov 2019
I have been traveling to La Habana regularly for the past 20 years and have been meaning to visit and finally did last week. What a hidden gem tucked into a side street near the Univ de Habana. Beautiful decor, wonderful collection of art and furniture and beautiful courtyards outside to catch a quiet respite in a busy area. Spectacular stained glass, chandeliers portraits and statues make this a well worth stop.

Surprised to see a Napoleon Bonaparte Museum in Cuba
Oct 2019 • Couples
This museum is really well done, and quite surprising that they have so many artifacts from Napoleon.

All I could do is look around, and imagine, as I don't speak Spanish, and all the informational signs were in Spanish. This is a beautiful three floor villa with no elevators. Why would there be elevators going back hundreds of years :) The view from the top floor is amazing.

There is no tour guide, or no hand held audio guide. There were a lot of volunteers on each of the floors, but unless you spoke Spanish, they were unable to communicate with you.

Still you can see the many displays that are very well done, and you do get a sense of Napoleon life through these artifacts but it still would have been nice to know the history of such items.

If I hadn’t had a guide book I would never have thought to go there no advertising
This is a collection of a very wealthy Cuban Gentlemen that collected items that are Napoleon in style and of the period some are second Napoleon others are Empire and Regency in style this very spacious Palace it has great views there are some items that Napoleon wore mostly second empire dark red mahogany
Only a few true blonde empire furniture pieces it was a good change to see the antiques set in a beautiful period house you could just imagine what life was like $3 to enter I was the only one there more staff than guests on3 levels no elevator or tour guide

A beautiful villa, very well maintained; interesting, and some weird, Napoleon artificacts.
Jul 2019 • Couples
The villa is worth visiting on its own. The Napoleon artifacts range from interesting to amazing to weird (a molar and toothbrush, his death mask). Worth visiting, especially if you are in Vadado.
