There are 3 levels, all filled with outstanding pieces of art. There's air conditioning too- a nice bonus if you've ever been to Santiago de Cuba. It has lots of paintings, sculptures and some exotic artifacts down at the bottom level- don't miss those.

Located in the downtown, few corners from Casa Granda hotel. Building is beautiful to see but the museum artifacts are not too interesting. Statues, paintings all in Spanish unfortunately. Entrance fee is 3 pesos. Good for a 30 min tour.
