The Cuban half of the Fine Arts Museum has a wonderful collection - we spent two hours this time and needed more. Wilfredo Lam’s work is amazing, and there are many other artists to discover. The international side is also well worth a visit but...More

Go not just to admire the art but to understand more and more about the complicated history of Cuba. It is very well done (having a knowledgeable guide really adds to the experience).

We had a tour led by a docent as part of our tour program. I thought the art that we saw, which was all contemporary was both beautiful and interesting. It was more meaningful to hear the explanations of the symbolism and artists’ backgrounds. Since...More

Great value, plenty to see, well exhibited. The only thing lacking was more postcards of the artworks to purchase. Well worth a visit if you enjoy art.

I don't get a chance to go to art museums much . I thoroughly enjoyed this collection. It was so massive . I don't think I got a chance to see everything. Dedicate a full half day to go through this art gallery

Highly recommended un a city if extreme disappointments. If you like modern art, then my advice carries. Its a no brainer. If not, just check the boxes on the history spots and get out a town

When you are an art lover, then this place is yours. The museum is just behind the revolution museum, so easy to find. The Bacardi building is just on the other side of the road.

You can easily spend several hours in this museum. There is a huge collection of Art which is very well presented. The information about the artists is limited so it would be worth having a guide if you have time.
