The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes has two locations in Havana - one for world art (the Coleccion de Arte Universal), and the second location dealing with Cuban art (the Coleccion de Arte Cubano). We didn't have time to see both so selected and thoroughly enjoyed the Cuban collection. It was nicely displayed in a purpose-built building. Displayed chronologically, and well worth the two hours spent - could have spent two days there!

Nicely displayed works of art which span much of Cuba's art and political history. I was part of a small private tour group and there were only a few other folks wandering around. Our curator/guide was wonderful and extremely knowledgable. The art was varied, but always wonderful and frequently colorful. Definitely a 'must see' in Havana in my opinion.

Magnificent works of art helped to fill in our picture of Cuba and Cubans through art work. Because we were on a tour, we saw many of the most famous pieces of art, but would have loved to have more time to amble the galleries to see more. This is a real arts hub for the city. On a return walk, we saw ensembles of high school performers rehearsing for a big teen arts festival that was taking place here after we left.

We had a tour and were only able to see the period of art following the revolution, due to time restraints. I would recommend spending more than time there. It was a Saturday and not crowded.

Having drinks in the exquisitely tiled restaurant in the old part of the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes was one of the highlights of our trip. Really friendly staff and beautiful views of Havana from the windows. We only regret we had already eaten when we went. Oh, and the art was impressive too!
