I can’t lie. I loved this museum. It’s Majestic and with really good exhibitions. Impressive to see Antonio’s Maceo boots! I was in shock just imagining his hight. the only Egyptian mummy on the island of Cuba, collections of arms. It’s a versatile museum where you can enjoy the history of Cuba at different stages. A place to must visit if you travel to Santiago de Cuba.

This museum shows a lot of local art (paintings) and there is also a part with military artifacts and there are also some Egyptian mummies.
But it is very difficult in Cuba to hang a painting straight. Almost none were hanging straight. That bothered me a lot. We saw that in many places...

This is a fascinating museum to spend some time in due to the variety. Largely based on the personal collection of Emilio Bacardi, it contains a lot of info and artefacts from Cuban History, an impressive Art collection, a great section on the War of Independence, some European history and some displays from South America, including some mummified bodies.

Allow a couple of hours to see it all - great place to visit if the heat is getting too much for you as the air conditioning needed to preserve the art is excellent.

This museum exhibits the art collection amassed by Emilio Bacardi on one level and Cuban historical relics on another. I is definitely worth a visit.

We started on the second floor, many paintings and some sculptures that describe the Cuban and Spanish history. It was very cool inside, thanks to the airco.
On the first floor it was a different matter, many artifacts from ancient history regarding the Cuban war against Spain. We didn't ask for a guide, but afterwards I think it would have been a good idea.
Information lables in this museum are all written in Spanisch.
Entrance fee 2 CUC.

A beautiful museum and some great pieces of artwork. My friend and I thought we would just spend an hour, but we found the artwork quality to be wonderful and worth more time. After viewing the gallery, we visited the historical section of the museum and it was fascinating. The exhibits were sobering and uplifting. We had been in Cuba for almost a week and had heard and read many stories of Cuba's turbulent history. Seeing the artifacts helped ground our understanding of the people and place. Highly recommend this museum. By the way, the admission cost was only 2 CUC, and the gallery portion has air conditioning - most welcome!

This musuem has a good collection of artwork collected by the bacardi family. This collection of sculptures, including "the street vendor", would make the visit worthwhile. The painting are feature painting from the industrial revolution period, with a mix of impressioninsm works and classical painting.
My favorite musuem in Cuba.

If you are interested in art, but not scholarly or knowledgeable about less well-known art, this will be a hard place to enjoy. Mostly dark oils from places and eras and movements unknown to me.

Probably with a little study, one could find things to appreciate here, but to just wander in off the street as we did, the air conditioning was as much a highlight as anything.
