“A Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

This museum is one of its kind in Cuba. Dating back to 1882 it has been impecably restored. We asked a cabbie outside the hotel to bring us to the town of Matanzas to shop and tour. The total cost for 6 of us was $80 CUD for 6 hours of a guided tour. The museum charges $3 CUD per person for a guided tour. It was done in a small group of 8 people and the language of the guide was great. We also heard tours done in french and german while we there. The restoration of the woodword, architecture and all the old equipment and bottles was amazing. To hear the story behind all the various equipment was worth double the cost. I have tried to upload nice pictures of this museum but they simply do not do it justice. I would recommend this trip to everyone in Varadero. It's a nice day away from the resort and there is so much to see
