Although quite interesting there is a limited amount to see and will only take you a few minutes to walk around. I would recommend not paying extra 5cuc for photos as that is very over priced.

While the museum itself has rather dingy representations of what must be fabulous Carnival costumes, the folk dancing troupe got visitors up and dancing and was a lot of fun. African rhythms, quite different from much of the other music we heard along the way.

Our experience at the museum was full of fantastic Santiago carnival imagery, but sadly accompanied with "carnival" performed by cleaning ladies that were moping the floor and really disliked our attendance in the house. We were there in the middle of the day of course :)

Simply loved it!! We love cuban music and party full stop and this tiny cute musseum will really show what santiago de cuba carnival is all about. There is performance at the premises sometimes too, do check the performances and show timings with the guides. Lovely costumes and traditional outfits. Recommend it!

The dance show at 4.30pm lasted 20-25 mins with some audience participation. Museum entrance fee is 1CUC, plus 5CUC for photos - probably not worth paying this. The museum exhibits all in Spanish. Small but fine.
