The Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum) treasures the most comprehensive collection of Cuban art. This elegant Art Deco style building was inaugurated as Fine Arts Palace in 1954, housing at that time decorative arts, historical, archaeological, numismatic, ethnographic objects; etc. Eventually, the entity decided to transfer funds and became exclusively into an art institution, due to the considerable growth of the collections.
In the permanent halls of this building are preserved and exposed the finest works from the colonial period to modern times, with pieces of internationally renowned 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 foster a constant dialogue between the traditional art 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.
Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00 and Sundays from 10:00 to 14:00.
