If you can, arrange a tour with the curator or one of the art professors from the museum. It's an amazing museum full of exceptional Cuban art. The Museum shop has very reasonably priced posters, prints, and etc. for sale and there's a snack shop also on the grounds.

The museum is split across 2 buildings - one houses Cuban Art and the other houses everything else.

We enjoyed the Cuban art a lot, especially the modern section - there is some interesting art here including some witty observations on life.

The other building is a beautiful place but the art was not so great.

The art itself was interesting but what really stole the show was the stunning building that houses it, particularly with its beautiful stained glass ceiling.

Some of the works were really nice and colorful, and you get a different perspective to the Cuban life. You have to leave all the bags in the entrance. 5 CUC / person and coins for the bag keeper and to toilets. There are two buildings but one was enough for us.
