When you are an art lover, then this place is yours. The museum is just behind the revolution museum, so easy to find. The Bacardi building is just on the other side of the road.

You can easily spend several hours in this museum. There is a huge collection of Art which is very well presented. The information about the artists is limited so it would be worth having a guide if you have time.

Never been to an art gallery before my friend suggested it and we had a great time. Obviously art is subjective and the some of the modern art was insulting, I am more a traditionalist, paintings, sculptures etc and one artist in particular Carlos Enriquez...More

This is well worth a visit. The spaces are wide and it certainly wasn’t crowded when we went in June. I was particularly interested in the revolutionary art but it covers exhibits from all periods.

I don’t recall the business hours, but pretty sure they are pretty standard (like 8 or 9 to 5 or 6). I’m sure you can search on Google and find this. There is no cost to enter.
