The Art Deco style building housing now the most comprehensive collection of Cuban art, was inaugurated as Fine Arts Palace in 1954. At that time the museum treasured historical, archaeological and ethnographic objects, decorative arts, numismatics and other thesauri but then, due to the considerable growth of the collections, the entity decided to transfer funds and eventually became exclusively an art institution.
In the permanent halls of this building are preserved and exposed the finest works from the colonial period to about 2000 with pieces of internationally known artists like Carlos Enriquez, Wifredo Lam, Mariano Rodríguez, Amelia Peláez, Fidelio Ponce, René Portocarrero, Víctor Manuel, Raúl Martínez, Servando Cabrera Moreno, Alfredo Sosabravo, Nelson Domínguez, Choco, Fabelo, Pedro Pablo Oliva, among many others. In addition, the museum has temporary exhibitions rooms that enable a constant dialogue between the historicity and the latest productions.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit this site if you want to learn about the most important moments of Cuban artistic production.
