This is a place that our tour guide said was changing rapidly more things being added weekly. The museum has a mix of things inside worth a visit note not like English museums it is sparse but non the less how the artists view people is interesting

At least this Bacardi doesn't have to go by the name of white rum like the rest of Cuba's Bacardi does. Certainly worth a visit so many interesting things to see

Mmmmm not our cup of tea really. Not what we expected. It's a at gallery now with some occasional reference to the Bacardi family. Beautiful building but tick it s done. However if you are an art gallery fanatic then sure you will love it. We aren't so not a great spot for us and you have to pay to... More

This museum was a pleasant surprise. I knew that there would be a lot of the family history, but it also has a lot of history of Cuba and the Santiago region. There's a very nice art collection upstairs, and an Egyptian mummy (really!) downstairs.

Interesting museum - art, history, revolution and Egyptian mummies. Need a guide as no displays are in English and museum is not laid out in a chronological order. You can just ask for a guide (free, but tips expected)

Intresting to understand better the history of Santiago and also the history of Cuba, was donated to the city by Barcardi, but not the one of the run.

The paintings in the gallery where arranged without any system and did not fit together in any sense. Got a shock when I saw how unprotected the mummies were flying around in their glass boxes with flourescent lights right above. I was wondering how old the mummies might be and since there was no information given I asked one of... More

Eclectic and generally high quality, diverse collection of Colonial era art. Especially strong portraiture and sculptures on first floor (check out beautiful portrait of a black alcoholic man and the sculpture of the girl with a a frog on her leg). Downstairs interesting colonial past items. Don't miss the ethnic collection, which is located at the back of the ground... More

This is a good art museum, with European style art but including a lot of works by Cuban artists. Downstairs there are a great many artifacts from the history of the town, but also including some from the original inhabitants of the island. Worth a visit.

This museum displays paintings (2nd floor) along with an historical tour of the revolution (1st floor) and some weird items, totally unrelated to Cuba, collected by M. Moreau over the years, including an Egyptian mummy (?). There are some interesting exhibits. I was impressed by the antique wooden torpedo-submarine, moved by an electric battery.
