Downtown Havana in the historic district. Gorgeous modern building, soaring atrium. Air conditioned in the galleries. We visited only the wing with Cuban artists, like a trip through time from the 1700 to today. Amazing !

My husband is not really a fan of museums but In love them even though I'm not an art expert by any means, but I did love looking at these incredable pieces. Interesting also to see the politics mixed in also.

Great place to escape Havana heat and browse 2 floors of Cuban art arranged mainly chronologically. Broad range of styles. Bizarrely there was a singing clown in the lobby when we went.

Really interesting display of Afro-Cuban art. Going through whole (air conditioned) museum is about 1.5 hours. Not too much propaganda.
