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...More

There are 3 levels, all filled with outstanding pieces of art. There's air conditioning too- a nice bonus if you've ever been to Santiago de Cuba. It has lots of paintings, sculptures and some exotic artifacts down at the bottom level- don't miss those.

Located in the downtown, few corners from Casa Granda hotel. Building is beautiful to see but the museum artifacts are not too interesting. Statues, paintings all in Spanish unfortunately. Entrance fee is 3 pesos. Good for a 30 min tour.

This was for us one of the more boring things we did. A lot of photos and information and the history was interesting but she was too fast, just wanted it to be over.

I have no idea. it was the home of the Spanish governor or something during the era the Spaniards controlled Cuba. I expect if you Google the name of the museum, information like that will be readily available.
