This is well worth a visit. The spaces are wide and it certainly wasn’t crowded when we went in June. I was particularly interested in the revolutionary art but it covers exhibits from all periods.

We only visited the Cuban art section but enjoyed what we saw. There is some really interesting art that reflects Cuba’s history and culture.

There are 2 museum buildings- Cuban art and International art. Se went to Cuban art exhibition. The staff of the museum look bored and they are talking to each other very loudly.. The collection on the first floors is poor I was expecting more :(

I don’t recall the business hours, but pretty sure they are pretty standard (like 8 or 9 to 5 or 6). I’m sure you can search on Google and find this. There is no cost to enter.
